Loughton is home to many historic pubs and the Gardener's Arms – photographed here in around 1889 – on the corner of York Hill and Pump Hill is one the oldest.

It began life in the early 1800s as a tea room and is at a site known locally as 'Grout's Corner', which provided stunning views across Loughton and the Forest.

The area has since become much more developed, but the the wooden slatted cottages next door, which were built in 1525, survive to this day.

The Warren, as seen here in 1900, was built in the 18th century as a resort for wealthy visitors to the Forest.

In around 1800 it became the home of General Grosvenor, a close friend of the Duke of Wellington, before it was taken over by the Corporation of London and became the residence of the Superintendent of Epping Forest. Is it now the conservator's headquarters.

The drinking fountain on the corner of Loughton High Road and Station Road was a prominent landmark in the town.

Pictured here in around 1900 – approximately 30 years after it was built – it was knocked down by a bus in 1934, before being rebuilt as a smaller wooden structure in 1936.

Albion Granaries, seen here in 1903, had a prime location on Loughton High Road.

The original building was demolished in 1981 and was rebuilt as now a supermarket, but the clock featured in the current building serves as a reminder of its history.
