History of Debden

Debden is listed in the Domesday book as Tippendene, but was also known as Deppendena which means Dep (deep) and Den (valley).

This part of Essex suffered extensively in both world wars and so the London County Council, who was instrumental in developing housing after the first world war, soon set to work. The Debden Estate was built on the outskirts of Loughton after hostilities ceased in 1945. The construction plans divided the community between those who were desperate for a home who welcomed the new estate and those who mourned the loss of the Roding Valley and its wildlife.

Debden grew quickly thanks to the families moving onto the estate and soon brick built houses sprung up alongside the prefabricated units. Away from the estates towards Debden Green mock period houses together with more substantial farm cottages were built in the early 20th century. This burst of development enlarged the footprint of Debden itself northwards towards Theydon Bois.
