Walk from Hainault Forest to Epping. From Theydon Bois took a compass bearing and hacked through the woods. Welcome shade on a very warm day.jedthehumanoid19/05/2020
Parked in track entrance. Walked back, wandered round in trees to south of road.CreakingHiker05/11/2019
Wandered about area of suggested HP but nothing notable. Nice banking at Ambresbury Banks fort though, took reading there: TL 43685 00326.Aye Jimmy08/09/2019
On the cycle from Madia Vale to Bishops Stortford (70km) with GFE.Fionalevey28/12/2018
From small lay-by. Wandered around in woods, HP seemed to be a small mound.PeterD12/04/2018
After some of the dismal hills experienced earlier in the morning, this was quite pleasant. A pull in to the nw of hp opposite the posh gates and driveway sufficed for the 10 minute walk through fallen leaves to the grid ref. It may not be the Cairngorms but is better than other parts of Essex.Campbell Singer22/02/2018
Disappointing indeterminate top given iconic name.Bramley18/11/2017
Parked on minor road then walked about in the woods like I did in the late 1980's.Dugswell205/03/2017
41-mile/1900ft climb bike ride from Oakwood: Epping Forest, Lambourne Hill, Cabin Hill, Havering atte Bower, Marks Gate.Mark Jackson18/02/2017
Handy dirt layby at TL43660037. Had a wander around the forest in pitch darkness. LED mini-mag useful, expect passing drivers wondered what was going on in the woods. All flat, nothing jumped out as being a definitive HP.jonglew06/02/2017
Summit could be anywhere just off the roadSwindon Bagger29/01/2016
Walk from Theydon Bois station, across the forest. Summit difficult to pinpointtrimarc201/09/2015
With Phil Dant Epping forest. Epping lovely bit epping flat, Epping impossible to determine epping highest point, loadsa epping minor mossy epping hummocks. 160 epping double paces back south east from the Epping car and fifty Epping metres south into the first and back to the epping car in a triangle. I reckon we covered enough epping ground and have epping bagged it!!!vegibagger01/09/2015
Did with my daughter Laura, after doing Lambourne Hill, and then on to Clayton Hill via the pub at High Beech.pdantic06/06/2015
Trees and more trees.All pretty flat. I still wince at the name Epping Forest after a disastrous orienteering run I did here 2 years ago when I could not find the first control, despite setting off full of confidence on a bearing. Too late I discovered I had picked up the wrong map so nothing matched. All good experience?Chris Pearson11/03/2015
Parked in bus stop by junction, followed GPS to GR in gathering gloom. Lots of thrashing about but covered the area, no significant mark for top. Trig back at roundabout equally obscured, buried in a hedge...nordicstar22/10/2014
Epping to Loughton. A slight mound just N of road junction seemed best bet other than the ramparts of Ambresbury Banks.Smudge26/12/2013
Woodland, tough to guess the real top.Adrian11/03/2012
