Welcome to the Friends of Epping Forest website
Passionate about Epping Forest,
the Friends was formed over 45 years ago.
Our main aim is to ensure the Forest is
preserved in accordance with
the 1878 Act,
which required it to be a place where
íthe natural aspect is preservedí.
In addition, we engage with the public,
providing opportunities to learn about and
appreciate the Forest, through guided
walks, talks and events...
...to ensure that it remains...
"an unenclosed open space dedicated
for the recreation and enjoyment of the public..."
"For all time!"...
...as Queen Victoria amusingly quipped,
when she famously visited Epping Forest in 1882.
