The London/Kent and London/Surrey border South Street

A SQUARE BY SQUARE LOOK AT LONDON
TQ58 42 An area of countryside, suburban housing and part of the village of Tatsfield

Boundary London/Kent/Bromley and London/Surrey/Bromley
The boundary goes north west and enters Painter’s Wood at the end of which it meets the Kent/Surrey boundary. It turns north to cross Avenue Road and goes north up Cudham Road. At the junction with Hillside Road it swings away west of Cudham Road while continuing to go west

Here Kent and Surrey meet - and the posher areas start. They don't start just yet however as the boundary tracks round the Biggin Hill/Tatsfield border.

Post to the west Tatsfield

Compilation of this work has taken many years and numerous sources of material. I would like to note some short histories of Biggin Hill and some web sites.
