Having flowed south from its source by Gallows Corner Romford, the Ravensbourne crosses Hornchurch Road, Hornchurch immediately entering Harrow Lodge Park. It then flows for about 0.75 miles south west through the park entering a very large boating lake formed in about 1958 by damming the river. It exits the lake continuing 0.25 miles in a southwesterly direction and leaves
the park at Upper Rainham Road, Hornchurch, immediately joining the River Rom very close to the point at which the Rom is "renamed" as the River Beam, which then flows southward to Bretons.
