Traditionally on 11th November on Staples Hill, the Loughton Loppers would rush to gather here in the belief that if they lopped a branch before midnight, their 'ancient right' to lop wood on 'common waste' would continue for the next year. This act eventually contributed to the Epping Forest Act of 1878, which saved the forest for the enjoyment of the people.
