The London/Surrey boundary. Farleigh Court Road

A SQUARE BY SQUARE LOOK AT LONDON
TQ 36 61 An area of farms, woods and scattered housing

Boundary London/Surrey/Croydon
The boundary reaches the south eastern tip of Beeches Shaw going south and then continues on the same line to the edge of Mossyhill Shaw which it crosses and on the southern side turns due west.

Post to the north Selsdon Wood

Farleigh
Isolated hamlet partly scattered about a large green and enclosed by woodland. Here in the middle ages wood was grown as standards – mature oak and beeches grown above the coppice. This is a traditional Surrey practice to meet the demand for firewood from London and also provide timber for shipbuilding etc. It was an estate of Merton College, Oxford.
