Loughton to Theydon Bois walk
A group of 14 of us met at Loughton station on Saturday 25th September and headed into Epping Forest. We walked via The Stubbles, visiting Strawberry Hill Pond and crossing the Epping New Road to continue our route on the green ride by way of the Ups and Downs through to High Beech for lunch break and to admire the view. The weather was cloudy all day, with no sight of the sun, a bit muggy in the morning but comfortable for walking.
Another group member joined us at High Beech, and after lunch we headed out on the grandly named Generals Ride and then the Verderers Ride, making our way to through to Ambresbury Banks before carrying on around the ‘Theydon Loop’ with strangely named places such as The Four Wantz, Wormleyton Pits and Genesis Slade, and then down to Theydon Plain and the final stretch to Theydon Bois station.
A walk of 7.5 miles according to my pedometer counter.
