A view of Staples Hill Pond and verdant green trees downhill below in the height of Spring.

Staples Hill is an area of pollarded oaks and hornbeams and is deeply-rooted in the Forest's history as a site of one of the earliest protests against enclosure of the Forest in the 1800s. Its valley is home to Loughton Brook, a scenic natural watercourse that feeds into nearby Baldwin's Pond in Blackweir Hill.
