Epping Forest, London Borough of Waltham Forest, London, Essex, Greater London, England, United Kingdom (51.66769 0.05480)
The forest is approximately 19 kilometres (12 mi) long in the north-south direction, but no more than 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) from east to west at its widest point, and in most places considerably narrower. It lies on a ridge between the valleys of the rivers Lea and Roding. It contains areas of woodland, grassland, heath, streams, bogs and ponds, and its elevation and thin gravelly soil (the result of glaciation) historically made it unsuitable for agriculture. The forest was saved from destruction in the late 19th century after popular protests prompted the City of London to take legal action to prevent enclosure.
