  • Epping Forest is an ancient deciduous forest located to the north of London.
  • The forest has been used since Norman times when it was used for deer hunting. Commoners grazed animals and obtained wood for firewood and building.
  • It is now very popular with visitors who enjoy walking, riding and fishing.
