The London/Essex Border - Parker's Shaw

Boundary London/Essex/Havering. The boundary follows the boundary of Well Wood (Coombe Wood on the other map) to Hole Farm Lane. The boundary goes south east along the boundary of a wood, crossing a path between Farm Lane and Warley Street and then intercepting and following another path along the edge of the wood and turning at Pavilion north east to Cricket Ground.
The boundary has been adjusted to run down the M25.
