The spirit of Copped Hall

There’s a beautiful Georgian mansion sitting on top of a rolling hill not far from me in Epping. It’s not really known or talked about in the area. A few people remember playing in the ruins as kids. That’s about it.

In 1995 the house and grounds were saved by a group of self-confessed mad locals who set up a Trust and raised the funds. 60 volunteers are now working together to restore The Hall. It’s a kind of haphazard and higgledy-piggledy approach but that’s entirely the charm.

I’ve joined the committee and will be whipping their marketing in to shape sharpish. I can’t wait to bring their story to life and to share progress. More news to follow…
