Gills Farm.
Gills was a manor of Epping and took its name from that of a family which were Waltham Abbey’s tenants there, and it later became part of the Copped Hall Estate. The farmhouse is a 16th building, timber-framed, plastered, and weather-boarded. Like every other manor in the area  - there is also a moat.
