The northern border follows Allard Street and Epping Road (New Hampshire Route 27), passes through woodlands to Oak Street Extension, then follows Forest Street, Wadleigh Street, Salem Street, the Pan Am Railways line again, and Norris Brook to the Squamscott River, which it follows north to the Stratham town line.[2]
