|Route outline (key)|
The A1007 ran along what is now Snaresbrook Road, Eagle Lane and Falcon Way in Woodford.
Starting in a corner of Epping Forest at a junction that has now been considerably altered, the road headed east along Snaresbrook Road across the open space. Presently the road crossed the A11 (current A1199 into Eagle Lane. On the far side of the level crossing the road ended on the A113.
The section on Eagle Lane east of the A11 (current A1199) was downgraded in the 1940s when the level crossing was removed to facilitate the start of London Underground Central line services and the road closed to through traffic. Whereas a subway was built to retain the right of way, the eastern section of the road was renamed Falcon Way to emphasise that it was now a different road.
After construction of the M11 and its feeder roads to the east, the rest of the road was downgraded.
