Walking Close to Epping Forest

Walking Close to Epping Forest

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

This guide focuses on the area in and close to Epping Forest in North East London. There are ten varied and interesting circular walks from between 4 and 9 miles in length. Epping Forest is a delight, a magical place where you can expect to stumble over Hansel and Gretel's gingerbread cottage in the deep dark woods. Unlike most English woodland, evergreens are the exception; deciduous trees of all shapes, sizes and varying species fill the area, and very few rhododendrons!

The walk locations are:
Theydon Bois and Steward's Green Lane - 6.5 miles
High Beach - 4.5 miles
Gunpowder Park and Sewardstonebury - 7.5 miles
Abridge - 4.25 miles
High Beach and Upshire - 8.5 miles
Hainault Forest Country Park - 9 miles
Chingford and Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge - 5.5 miles
Epping Green and Nazeingwood Common - 5.25 miles
Theydon Bois - 4.5 miles
Waltham Abbey and Cobbin's Brook - 7 miles
