Near High Beach, Epping Forest, Essex, England, Great Britain
Epping Forest, Essex.

A small glade in the High Beach area of Epping Forest in Autumn.

There are Fallow and Muntjac deer in this forest although you would probably be very lucky to see any.

I have visited Epping Forest many times and have seen a small group of deer only once. They saw me at the same time and melted away into the trees.

Near Jack's Hill, Epping Forest, Essex, England, Great Britain
Epping Forest, Essex.

Beech trees near the Ditches Ride east of the Furze Ground in the northern part of the forest. This is acid Beech wood which is rare in this country as Beeches normally grow on limestone. Much of Epping Forest has been designated as a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest' partly because of the acid Beech woods.

You may notice the ground dropping away in the distance. This is the edge of the high ground overlooking Debden and Theydon Bois. Here are some Epping Forest walks in this part of the forest.
