Sunday 16th May
Copped Hall visit & walk
Copped Hall is a splendid mansion and estate, which many of you will recognise from trips around the M25. Dating from about 1700, it was gutted by fire in 1917 and since then there has been gradually restored.
Tours last 2-3 hours and cost £7. Meet at the Hall at 10am. Please note, on guided tour days the gates are only open from 10am to 11am. After the tour we plan to do a short walk. There are coffee and cakes available at the hall, but we suggest you bring sandwiches for lunch.
From the M25, junction 26: Follow signs to Loughton (then to Epping). Drive uphill through the forest to the roundabout. Take the first left exit (B1393), passing the garage on the left. In slightly over half a mile, turn left, signposted Upshire. After a few hundred yards you will see on the right the entrance gates and gate houses to Copped Hall. See map
Wednesday 19th May
Pub Walk – The Queens Head, Boreham
Meet at the shopping parade in Butterfield Road (The Larches), Boreham (see map) at 7:30pm for a lovely evening walk down by the river and finishing up at The Queens Head by the village church (see map) for a well-earned drink about 9ish.
