London: where does it end?

Given that the age of the United Kingdom is currently 311 years old, that’s quite a lot of time for things to go right, go wrong and for the common folk to get confused. The Kingdom of England itself was founded (unified) in 927, out of a higgledy-piggledy collection of royals, wannabe royals and other standing in the queue.

Which then brings us to the next element of the post. London is huge, and a huge presence across all of England, but even more so, physically. So, our puzzle to solve today is – if England is huge and old, and London is pretty much the same, then where did London start and end? Or did it just – hey presto – just exist in a poof of smoke? It’s a huge question to ask, so let’s start with a more sensible approach: where does London begin and end? Watch the video below. It’s an enjoyable wry and funny walk to London’s STRANGE Easternmost Point. Along the way, you’ll learn a thing or two to impress your friends.

North Ockenden is as far you can go without leaving London proper. North Ockendon is the easternmost settlement of Greater London, England, and part of the London Borough of Havering. It is 18 miles east-northeast of Central London and consists of a dispersed settlement within the Metropolitan Green Belt. Video courtesy of Alex in Great Britain.

It may look leafy and a wee bit empty, but London (red) buses come out that way regularly. See the red sign in the picture below? Give it a go.
