  View from Baldwins Hill, Epping Forest, Loughton, Essex, England   The view from Baldwins Hill, Loughton looking east over the forest.

We started our walk from here going down the open grass and into the forest towards Baldwins Pond.

The places mentioned on this trip can be seen on the location map, link at the top of the page, so you may want to open the map first (opens in new window).

There was no wind when we were here and, consequently, the water surface was like a mirror.
