The A1069 is a short road in east London, part urban, part crossing Epping Forest. Unclassified in 1922 the road came into existence in the mid-1920s.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A110 in Chingford Green and heads northeastwards along Station Road. The station (the end of the Chingford Branch Line) is met after a few hundred yards, after which the road bends to the right and reaches the edge of Epping Forest (which here has no trees on it). The road passes through the open space, although there are still some buildings lining the road, such as the hotel pictured. The road soon enters the wooded section of the Forest and runs along a dead-straight section, passing a car park for the invisible Connaught Water, before ending at a T-junction on the A104 (former A11) apparently in the middle of nowhere.
