The latest news from Redbridge’s clubs and societies.
Wanstead Historical Society
The group is hosting an illustrated talk by John Shepherd on Epping’s Copped Hall throughout the 16th and the 17th century on Thursday at 8pm.
Copped Hall’s Georgian mansion was built in 1758, but the history of the manor dates back to at least the 13th century, and Mr Shepherd will explore what the house and gardens were like.
In 1564, Copped Hall Manor was granted to Sir Thomas Heneage by Queen Elizabeth I and he rebuilt the mediaeval hall into the house.
Mr Shepherd will explain the property was a large house with a court in the middle and a fine 174ft long gallery.
Visitors to the meeeting will be charged £3 and there will be refreshments following the presentation.
The event will take place in The Churchill Room at Wanstead Library, Spratt Hall Road, Wanstead.
