Thames Tributary Mardyke - Warley Street

Thames Tributary Mardyke
The Mardyke flows south east and is joined by a tributary from ponds on the golf course to the north east


Boundary London/Essex/Havering
This boundary line has now been replaced by a line which goes down the M25. The old line followed a path going south east from Cricket Ground. It turned north east still on the path but left it going south east, parallel with Warley Street, before reaching a ‘works’. It crossed Codham Hall Lane and then turned north east to cross Warley Street and continued, slightly more east but still north east. To meet the Mardyke, which it then followed southwards to the northern boundary of Warley Hall Wood

Great Warley Church of England Primary School, also known as the Lower Warley school. In 1843 the rector built a permanent school using a government grant, on a site given by Charles Winn, Lord Headley. The school was supported by subscriptions, and grants from the National Society. In 1862 a teacher's house was added. In 1936 it was changed to only take juniors and infants and was closed in 1968. Since converted to housing.
