Lets take a closer look at our class name Epping.
Epping, as it stands today, has grown as a favoured town of residence for those who work in London. Its market still brings shoppers in from surrounding villages and towns every Monday. Perhaps the most prominent building in Epping these days is the District Council's office with its clock tower, designed to bring balance to the High Street with the old Gothic Revival water tower at the southern end, built in 1872, and St John's Church tower in the centre. The centre of Epping on and around the High Street is a designated conservation area.
Its history: In 1856, the Eastern Counties Railway (ECR), which later became part of GER, opened a double-track railway between Stratford and Loughton.
A single-track extension between Loughton and Ongar was added in 1865, but an increased usage on the line led to the building of double-track between Loughton and Epping.
Epping Railway Station was built about half-a-mile to the east of the High Street in order to avoid the high ridge on which the town is built.
During the Second World War, extensions to the Central Line were postponed, and it wasn't until 1949 when the Central Line officially reached Epping.
The old steam railway was electrified after the Second World War and became part of the London Underground Central Line.
This caused a rising demand for housing from commuters who now had easier access to London.
In 1994, the Epping to Ongar line was closed down by London Underground and sold to a private company.
Today, the Epping Ongar Railway Volunteer Society (EORVS) runs the section of railway as a heritage railway.
