The Green Lawns of Epping, E4

Back to these shores after our media excursion to Amsterdam for Koninginnedag and the Inauguration. This is the hunting lodge at the Forest of Epping. It was much used by our Tudor monarchs for the purposes of filling the larder. The lodge was built as high as possible to enable guests to watch the hunt, not to mention shoot the animals (which were often penned in below for their convenience) from the upper windows.
