Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge
The Lodge is situated in Epping Forest and was built in 1543 for King Henry VIII. It was later renovated by order of Queen Elizabeth I.
The royal party would have been entertained at the lodge on the upper floors where they would get a better view of the forest. The hunted animals were herded to run past the lodge were they could be shot at from the lodge.
The structure wouldn't have been enclosed as it is now, but more of an open frame, decorated with flags and banners when a hunt was taking place.
1589 - Preparing for the Hunt
July  2003
We protrayed the lodge in preparation for the arrival of a hunting party. Lots of food and drink being brought in to the building, whilst the carpenter carries out repairs on the structure.
We are a small but nationally based interpretation group, covering Tudor and Stuart domestic life. Founded in 1985, we have been recreating historic families in first person, to give visitors of historic houses an educational and memorable visit.

We specialise in turning an old house into a home, bringing a Tudor or Stuart family to life, to fully interact with your visitors.
We can also offer a range of variations around the same period, depending on what you have available.
We are always keen for new people to come and join us. As we recreate domestic life, we're open to all. No previous experience or in depth knowledge is required. The 'Workshop' in our title is all about training our members.
