The Epping Forest Controversy


    THE meeting of the Essex Field Club, which, as we announced last week, had been convened for the inspection of the thinned districts of Epping Forest, was in every way a remarkable gathering. Nearly 150 members and visitors assembled in Monk's Wood, among them, in addition to the conductors and officers of the Club, being Sir John Lubbock, Mr. J. Bryce, M.P., Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Prof. Boulger, Prof. W. R. Fisher, Dr. Church, Mr. Arthur Lister, Mr. Andrew Johnston (chairman of the Essex County Council), Mr. David Howard, Mr. Salmon (chairman of the Epping Forest Committee), Sir Frederick Young, Mr. Bernard Gibson, and others interested in the question of the Forest management.
