Day Visit to Copped Hall & Lunch
Thursday 14 October 2010
Dress: Jacket & Tie

This trip reflects two of the Master's interests - Education & Epping Forest. Lunch will be taken at Redbridge College, where the Master until recently was a Governor and past Chairman. The College has a renowned reputation for its catering training, and the students, with their additional work experience in premier London hotels and restaurants and at Ascot, will serve us a delightful lunch in the Rouge Restaurant.

After lunch we will drive the short distance to Copped Hall, Epping. The present mansion was built in 1752-58, burnt down in 1917, asset stripped and then rescued by The Copped Hall Trust in 1995. Since then work has been and still is being carried out by a band of volunteers and professionals to restore the house and gardens to their 1750's form.

The surrounding parkland was saved by the Conservators of Epping Forest - The City of London Corporation. There will be a guided tour of the mansion, followed by a tour of the grounds (including the large Walled Garden).

Tea and cakes will be served in the Racquets Court at the end of the tour. The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Gloucester have both visited Copped Hall recently.
