Loxford is a district of Ilford in the London Borough of Redbridge in north-east London, UK. It is a built-up, multi-ethnic locality.


The medieval manor of Loxford was in the possession of Barking Abbey and in 1319 the Abbess of Barking was licensed to fell oaks in Hainault Forest to rebuild her house here after a fire. The present Loxford Hall dates from about 1830 and was enlarged around 1860. The terraced street plan of the Loxford Hall estate was laid out at the end of the nineteenth century as one of a cluster of developments that filled southern Ilford with relatively small and cheap houses. The first Loxford schools were opened in 1904. Loxford School of Science and Technology is a new building replacing a secondary school. The Loxford Practice Loxford Polyclinic] - the first purpose-built - opened in 2009. It is the location of Loxford Water, a tributary of the River Roding that forms the northern boundary of Barking Park. Loxford Hall now serves as a child and family consultation centre for the North East London Mental Health Trust. Loxford's main ethnic groups are white, Pakistani and Indian. Ilford Lane has heavy South Asian influences.


Loxford is located between Ilford to the north and Barking to the south. Ilford Lane (A123 road) is the only main road in the area.


There are no stations in the area but Barking for London Underground, London Overground, National Rail services is located nearby in Barking. London Buses 169 and 366 and East London Transit EL1 and EL2 all operate within the area. Loxford is connected to the National Road Network by the A123 Ilford Lane.
