A country road running mainly down the side of the Squerries Estate. It goes from Kent Hatch Road to Westerham Road (A25)
Elm View Mill. Imposing redbrick corn mill of 1771 run by James Marchane and standing by the gates of Squerries Park. It had an iron overshot wheel fitted in 1868, replacing a wooden wheel which may have been breast shot. In 1890, the waterwheel was adapted to drive a set of pumps to supply water to Westerham – the only such mill adaption for the Metropolitan Water Board. The machinery was removed in 1936 and during the Second World War a doodlebug blew the roof off. It had been demolished by July 1960.
