Epping is a small market town and civil parish in the Epping Forest district of the County of Essex, England. It is located 17 miles north-east of the centre of London towards the northern end of Epping Forest on a ridge of land between the River Roding and River Lea valleys, 3.5 miles north-east of Loughton, 4.6 miles south of Harlow and 10.9 miles north-west of Brentwood. It is north-east of junction 26 (Waltham Abbey, Loughton A121) of the M25 motorway and south-west of junction 7 (Harlow) of the M11 motorway. The town retains a rural appearance being surrounded by Epping Forest and working farmland, and has many very old buildings, many of which are Grade I and II listed buildings. "Epinga", a small community of a few scattered farms and a chapel on the edge of the forest, is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. However, the settlement referred to is known today as Epping Upland. It is not known for certain when the present day Epping was first settled. By the mid 12th century a settlement known as Epping Heath (later named Epping Street), had developed south of Epping Upland as a result of vigorous clearing of the forest for cultivation. Epping Upland is a small hamlet to the North-West of the town of Epping. All Saints' Church is medieval in origin and was the original church for the town of Epping. Until Epping Municipal Cemetery was opened, burials from the area took place here. It served as a mother church to the chapel of ease which was built in the town until the end of the 19th century, when the Epping Act was passed, creating the separate Parish of St John the Baptist, served by the newly built parish church.
