redbridge

outer borough of London, on the northeastern perimeter of the metropolis, part of the historic county of Essex. The borough's name derives from the Red Bridge, which crossed the River Roding until the 1920s; the river itself was used for barge traffic until the mid-20th century. Redbridge was established in 1965 by the amalgamation of the boroughs and districts of Ilford and Wanstead, Woodford, and parts of Dagenham and Chigwell. It includes such areas as (roughly from north to south) Woodford Wells, Hainault Estate, Woodford, Woodford Bridge, Barkingside, part of Snaresbrook, Wanstead, Newbury Park, Chadwell Heath, Seven Kings, part of Leytonstone, Aldersbrook, Cranbrook Park, Goodmayes, and Ilford.
