Chase Cross is a district of the London Borough of Havering in London, England.Chase Cross lies 0.8 miles (1.2 km) East of Collier Row and just under 2 miles North of Romford. The name is thought to come from its position as a crossroads in the chase (hunting ground) or Hainault Forest.[1] The forest was cleared for agriculture in the 1850s, before being developed for housing in the 1930s.[2]
