The London Borough of Redbridge ( pronunciation (help·info)) is a London borough in the north east sub-region of Greater London, England and forms part of Outer London. Its administrative headquarters is at Redbridge Town Hall in Ilford. The local authority is Redbridge London Borough Council.
The name comes from a bridge over the River Roding which had been demolished in 1921. The bridge was made of red brick, unlike other bridges in the area made of white stone. The name had first been applied to the Redbridge area and Redbridge tube station was opened in 1947. It was earlier known as Hocklee's Bridge.
