The last post in this list, Post 217 has not been found but is described as being on the bank of the Thames. This post is about 9 miles from the point opposite Post 217 on the North bank and about 5 miles from the nearest point on the bank. Why the vast gap? Have all the posts disappeared?
Some possibly have disappeared but I think the answer is also that this area was very marshy and there were few roads through it.
On Barking & Dagenham / Havering boundary.
Note seam in road surface.
Perambulation of the Forest of Waltham, 8th September 1641 (17th Charles I).

Post 6 should be in the hedge just to the left of the sign but I could see no trace of it. Note seam in road surface.
Hog Hill Road. Apparently, lurking in the vegetation near the speed limit sign there is the Collier Row stone
