A NEW website has been launched to promote tourism in the district.

The site lists attractions such as the Essex Way walkers' trail, Copped Hall and Greensted Church, the oldest made from wood in the world, as places to go, alongside local shops and Epping Forest.

Maps of places to eat, drink and stay are also listed on the site, visiteppingforest.org.

The site has been set up by the groups behind some of the area’s attractions and is supported by Epping Forest District Council and Epping Forest Chamber of Commerce.
