Get back to nature and loose yourself in this ancient wood......well we kind of did and it was such fun. Starting off at first light, it took a wee while to get to where we wanted to be as the signposting is not the best...More
Was staying nearby so decided to go for a walk in the autumn sunshine in the forest.
Plenty of flora and fauna to see along with wildlife which was nice to see.
There’s plenty of routes to walk or just explore and create your own...More
Connaught Water is a large lake in Epping Forest, situated about a mile from Chingford. There is a free car-park adjacent to the lake, but no toilets or refreshment facilities.
We visit Connaught Water several times throughout the year, the last time being a few...More
An ordinance survey map is needed as sign posts and way markers are strikingly absent in the forest. Some spectacular glades and a good lunch stop at the King's Oak, High Beach, near the forest visitor centre and roughly half way between Chingford and Epping...More
Visit Epping Forest regularly for long training walks as it’s the highest point in Essex. Plenty to see with Connaught Waters and all it’s wildlife. The forest actually stretches for miles and can look quite different with the changing seasons. Fun for all the family
We were walking the Centenary Walk from Chingford station to Epping station yesterday, it was a return to my past for I was born in a house that backed on to Epping Forest a little further south.
I was rather surprised that the Centenary Walk...More
Epping forest is one of those special places within london that makes you feel as though you’re in another world entirely. There’s plenty of parking in the local car parks and lots of well maintained paths to walk along. The local speed limit varies and...More

I'm not in my 20's , so I'm not sure. I used to walk in the forest alone from about 12years old. Some dogs worry me when they are off the lead, I don't have a dog. I've never been scared of another human in the forest. I used to roam around as a child after school, while waiting to go to my dancing lesson, which was an hour later. My son's used to play together in the forest, one day they hid their cricket gear under a bush, when they returned after a few hours , the bat, ball and stumps had been stollen. I've had my car window broken, and a purse I stupidly left in the car stollen. There are thieves it seems and fly tippers that use the forest.As with anywhere in the UK, we have to look. Don't walk using a mobile (no signal in a lot of the forest anyway), don't jog with earphones, have your wits about you.There are horse riders, walkers, bike riders, dog walkers, parents with children all using the forest, lots of people around , on the main paths. Enjoy.
