Every year Trevor Roberts the Local History Recorder for Theydon Bois produces a Chronicle of events and stories which have taken place in the village in the preceding year. These form a valuable local history record and Theydon Bois Parish Council has presented a set to the Epping Forest District Museum in Waltham Abbey for inclusion in the Museum`s Local History Archive.
The Local History Reports were presented to Councillor Penny Smith, the Chairman of Epping Forest District Council by Theydon Bois Parish Chairman, Councillor Susan Jones.
Trevor Roberts has lived in Theydon Bois since 1995 and is a long standing member of many of the Community and Heritage organisations in the District.

The volumes cover the period from 1996 to the present and further volumes will be presented to the Museum on an annual basis. The Essex Local History Recording scheme has been in existence since 1981, the aim being to capture contemporary historical data at a local level and so create a record for future generations.
