In 1542, Henry VIII commissioned the building, then known as Great Standing, from which to view the deer chase at Chingford; it was completed in 1543. The building was renovated in 1589 for Queen Elizabeth I. The former lodge, now a three-storey building, has been extensively restored and is now a museum, which has been managed by the City of London Corporation since 1960. Admission is free.
There is a smaller hunting lodge, "The Little Standing", about a mile away in Loughton, part of the Warren, the Epping Forest HQ.
