The London/Kent Boundary. Well Hill

A SQUARE BY SQUARE LOOK AT LONDON
TQ49 65 An area of woodland, fields and scattered housing

Boundary London/Kent/Bromley
The boundary runs down Daltons Road, crosses south of the green at the junction with Skeet Hill Lane and goes down a path south opposite. It leaves the path at a junction from the east and curves in a semi circle, round and back to the path at the edge of Doctor’s Wood. It follows the wood boundary south west and turns south east as the wood boundary goes west. It reaches Pump Lane and follows for a while to the west of it , but then roughly follows it, and then continues to follow along it.
