There are also 12 Executive Committee
Member places (at present with 3 vacancies). Officers or Committee Members can be contacted via the e-mail
address below or further contact details are available on the village notice
boards. The Society
would be interested in hearing from people from the Village or surrounding
area who wish to protect our Green Belt and the best aspects of our village. They would be very welcome to join the committee.
The Society Organises a number of guided footpath walks
each year to explore the fields and forest surrounding Theydon Bois.
We look forward to seeing members, villagers and visitors to Theydon on the walks which are all FREE.
All walks start from the Village Hall in Coppice Row, are at a moderate pace and last about 2 hours, well controlled dogs on leads are welcomed on all the currently listed walks. Please note on Sundays the car park at the village hall is usually closed, but there is parking nearby.
2020 Walks Proposed Programme below. Dates to be confirmed.
TB&DRPS has so far planned four guided footpath walks for 2020. As noted above all walks start from the Village Hall in Coppice Row, are at a moderate pace and last about 2 hours, well controlled dogs on leads are welcomed on all the above walks. These walks are a good opportunity for villagers new and old as well as visitors to acquaint themselves with lesser known parts of our village.
The Conservators of Epping Forest have decided that in future they will organise visits to the Deer Sanctuary themselves, but this will probably be on a paid basis. The Society may possibly run one Deer Sanctuary Wallk in 2020, but to limit numbers it will be by pre-booking only. Details to follow.
The Preservation Society are also now starting to make details of their walks available as pdf's and the first two available are:
TB&DRPS WALK 01: Tracks - Past & Present (The walk of Sunday 3rd April 2011).
TB&DRPS WALK 02: Earthworks - Ancient & Modern. (The walk on Sunday 8th May 2011 and as 01/07/2012 ).
You are welcome to use these as an accompanying guide to the Society's walks or to try the walk 'under your own steam'.

Essex Highways Footpath Map
This is an excellent Interactive Footpath Map for Essex. The Public Rights of Way of each path is identified on the map by a code number both for the parish and the path. For example 'PROW 208_3' is in Theydon. This code number can be seen by clicking on the path along with the grid reference. If you have any comments about this path, you quote this code when contacting Essex Highways to enable the Public Rights of Way team to deal with your query more easily.
You can either use the zoom in/out function to find a specific area of interest on the map or use the search facility. You can check on who can use the different paths on the map by clicking on the 'Asset' Category on the left hand menu.
You can enable additional map categories by clicking the corresponding tick box.
