Boundary Kent/London/Bexley

The boundary goes south down the eastern edge of a wood and then intercepts Old London Road and turns east along it.

Burnt House Farm

 

Cookham Wood

Swallet. On Ruxley Manor Golf Course adjoining Cookham Wood. This is one of several swallets. A small brook, flowing in a north-west direction from Crockenhill, now sinks in a shallow depression just outside the wood.  An old O.S. map shows it sinking in the south-west corner of the wood, but it is the boundary that had changed rather than the location of the swallet. The wood is now a refuse tip.
