The Church of the Holy Innocents was built in 1873, designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield in Victorian Gothic style and is situate in the heart of Epping Forest. It is open every Sunday afternoon between 2.00 and 5.00 pm from the beginning of May to the end of September for visitors to look around and enjoy home-made cake and light refreshments in its tranquil churchyard. Visitors are encouraged to ascend the church tower to learn how to ring the carillon or to sit inside the church and listen to the Father Willis organ being played. On the altar cloth in the left hand chapel you can see the cattle brand marks for the local area depicted on the altar cloth and the carpet leading up to the altar shows the two varient spellings of High Beach/Beech.
