A map shows an area of ​​Great Britain where houses on the same street are on two different lock levels

Elmbridge in Surrey is currently subject to level 2 restrictions However, the area borders several others that are level 1 causing widespread confusion

Spelthorne, Runnymede, Woking, Guildford and Mole Valley, all of which are on Level 1, border the Borough of Elmbridge

This means that several towns in Surrey only follow Level 2 rules, with some properties on the same street split between the two lock levels

SurreyLive took a look at the official Borough Boundary Map to show which roads near the border are inside and outside the ‘high’ alert zone of the coronavirus, highlighting the different conditions in which some residents of Surrey live despite their proximity to another

North of Elmbridge, the boundary follows the Thames, past Thames Ditton Island, under Hampton Court Bridge (A309) and after Platt’s Eyot

The map shows that the Walton Houses in The Crescent and part of Felix Lane fall within the boundary; they are on the north side of the Thames However the nearby Holiday Inn, also at Felix Lane, is in Spelthorne on level 1

Part of the trail parallel to Bridge Street in Walton is inside the boundary, but going under the bridge to the riverside it enters Spelthorne territory So those who live in Thames Meadow live under level 1 restrictions

Residents of Wey Road and Round Oak Road, in Weybridge, near Bull Dog Island, can also be found in Elmbridge

The border means The Island properties in Weybridge are on Level 2, but a few blocks down is Riverside Park Homes, a residential park within a residential park, which is technically in Runnymede and at the 1

Just across Oyster Lane, the properties of Abbot Road, Dawson Road, York Road and Callard Road are technically in Woking and are on Level 1

The boundary continues to where Byfleet Road crosses the River Wey, excluding Byfleet and West Byfleet Then the river marks the boundary just before Park Barn Farm Oddly half of its buildings are in Elmbridge and half in Guildford, according to the OS map

The Elmbridge boundary continues north of Queen Anne’s Hill and south of The Hangers It crosses the A3, includes Painshill Park and then crosses the M25 at junction 10

It then continues through a predominantly rural area and curves eastward before reaching Martyr’s Green The border continues to crisscross the M25, twisting around Cobham, where it begins to share a border with Mole Valley

The border then passes, and excludes, Pachesham Park in Leatherhead, before curving north between Jessop’s Well in Elmbridge and Malden Rushett in Kingston

Elmbridge continues along its shared border with Kingston and then Richmond, both of which are level 2 areas, along with all other London boroughs

The Elmbridge border more or less follows the A3 and it is only after reaching the edge of the Hurst Park area in Molesey that it begins to mark out the level 1 areas again

The confusion was caused when Elmbridge first entered Level 2 because residents were still being told through the NHS Track and Trace app that they were in a medium risk area until  » 36 hours after the entry into force of the new rules This was due to a problem which was corrected later

Also, since the app only takes the first part of your zip code for privacy reasons, some people are told that they are in both a medium and high risk area, if the first part of their zip code covers both a Level 1 and Level 2 Zone
