Epping and Ongar Rural District was a rural district in the county of Essex, England from 1955 to 1974.[1]

Creation[edit]

It was created in 1955 by the merger of the disbanded Ongar Rural District and most of the disbanded Epping Rural District, except the civil parishes of Great Parndon, Harlow, Latton, Little Parndon and Netteswell, which were largely transferred to the newly created Harlow Urban District at the same time. It was administered from Epping.
