The London/Surrey boundary. Chipstead Valley Road

London/Surrey boundary. Chipstead Valley Road
TQ 29208 59466

Suburban area still trying to be countryside.


The London/Surrey/Croydon boundary goes from the footpath north across Chipstead Valley Road up Sandown Road and across the railway. North up the west side of Lyndhurst Road and then east along the southern edge of Prospect Plantation and at the end it meets the boundary with the London Borough of Sutton.
The London/Surrey/Sutton boundary then turns north up the east side of the Plantation, crosses Mount and continues across the end of Corrigan Avenue.

Woodmansterne Station. Opened 17th July 1932 to meet the demand of new housing in the area. Between Smitham and Chipstead on Southern Rail. It was a simple island platform reached by a footbridge and the land was given for free by the builders.
