Blue plaque for Copped Hall owner
 
A blue plaque is to be put on the wall of Hemnall Social Club by Epping Town Council in memory of Ernest Wythes, the one-time owner of Copped Hall.

The well-known philanthropist paid for the building of the St John's Church tower and also provided the church bells.

He also gave the money for the building of the Literary & Mechanics Institute in Hemnall Street (now Hemnall Social Club) and provided land for the Women's Institute Hall, which is now occupied by the town council offices and Epping Hall.

Mr Wythes name is already carved on the front of the social club building and a meeting room is named after him.

Councillors agreed unanimously to the plaque.
