King George 6 2x 2d Yvert N ° 254 year of issue 1951 Chingford is a suburban London borough, located 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Charing Cross. Historically a rural Essex parish, it gained urban district status in 1894, and between 1938 and 1965 formed the core of the Municipal City of Chingford, Chingford is now part of the North East London Borough of Waltham Forest. [1] [2] It borders Essex to the north, Enfield to the northwest, Woodford Green to the east, Walthamstow to the south and Edmonton to the west. To the west are the William Girling and King George V reservoirs, known together as the Chingford reservoirs, and the River Lea. To the north lies Epping Forest, which is in Essex but is maintained by the City of London Corporation Epping Forest is an area of ancient woodland in the South East of England, on the border between North East London and Essex. It is a former royal forest, and is managed by the City of London Corporation. It covers 2476 hectares [1] [2] and includes forest areas, grassland, heathland, rivers, swamps and ponds and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. [3] [4] Stretching between Forest Gate in the south and Epping in the north, Epping Forest is about 19 kilometers (12 miles) long in the north-south direction, but no more than 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from east to west at its widest point, and noticeably narrower in most places. The forest is located on a ridge between the valleys of the rivers Lea and Roding, its elevation and the thin gravel soil (the result of the Ice Age) historically made it unsuitable for agriculture.
