Epping Forest is a dense and vast woodland with a very dark past. It began life, many years ago as a royal hunting forest. However, the size of the forest, as well as its proximity to the capital, has meant that it has been a favourite haunt of the darker side of society.
Notorious highwaymen such as Dick Turpin used the forest as hideout, and it is said Turpin even murdered one of his victims there! Sadly, that custom is one that’s continued over the years. In more recent times, many murder victims have been found in the forest.
Many full bodied apparitions have been seen amongst the trees, some dating way back in history. People report seeing Boudicia’s soldiers roaming, and it doesn’t stop there! Dick Turpin is also claimed to haunt as well as a headless horseman, a drowned girl and many more.
Knowing this history, these woods are a creepy place during the day. Are you brave enough to explore them at night?
