Epping Forest - Great Sale Wood - Highams Park

The Epping Forest Conservators are currently planning the next ten-year programme for habitat conservation in Epping Forest. The work is due to start in 2024 and they would like your feedback on their proposals. Works are proposed across the whole of the forest but some of the proposed works will be in the Highams Park Area, being:

  • grassland restoration at Hatch Plain (just the other side of Chingford Lane),
  • a better path running between the park and the lake
  • pollarding restoration works in the forest on the southern side of Oak Hill (just the other side of the road to the Epping Forest Hotel)
