The London/Essex border - Weald Side

TQ 55 94.
The London/Havering/Essex boundary goes down the Weald Brook. On later maps this has changed to going down the M25.

The Weald Brook flows south and east towards the River Ingrebourne and the Thames

Weald Brook
This crosses under the motorway four times and is the main source branch of the River Ingrebourne. The high, steep banks are dominated by shrubs and trees with bramble, hawthorn, young sycamore and alder and there is little channel vegetation. Deer use it and there are water voles.
