near to Westcliff-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea, Great Britain

The Crowstone
The Crowstone
This was erected in 1837 and replaced the original, smaller stone, dating from 1755. The line between the Crowstone (or Crow Stone) and the TQ8678 : London Stone, Yantlet Creek marked the end of the City of London's authority over the River Thames. It is an important landmark on this section of coast and can be walked out to when the tide is out.

The corresponding upstream marker is the TQ0271 : London Stone, Staines.
