Visit to Epping Forest

with London Parks and Gardens Trust

10.30am, Thursday 7 July

Our visit starts at the Queen Elizabeth Hunting Lodge (15 minutes walk from Chingford Station), the royal hunting grandstand built in 1543. A guided tour of the building after coffee will be followed by a guided tour on foot of the important wood and pasture landscape of the forest in the area known as Barn Hoppitt. We shall then tour the garden of The Warren (to where a minibus will take those on foot), have a light lunch in the house, and afterwards listen to a talk on the Forest and the conservation issues of managing this landscape on the very edge of London, so valiantly saved as open space in the late C19.

An extra (afternoon) visit to Knighton Wood has now been added to this event.

Cost: £30 per person, including lunch. Numbers limited, and, please, apply no later than 23 June. For further information and for a booking form, contact Robert Peel or by phone: 020 7121 8938
