Wychwood projectWychwood Project

Charity no.: 1084259

In 1086, the Royal Hunting Forest of Wychwood covered much of what is now West Oxfordshire. The Wychwood Project was established to raise the awareness of, and appreciation for, the history and identity of the area and to work with local communities to restore the rich patchwork of landscapes and habitats within the former Forest boundaries. By presenting  people with the challenge or opportunity to affect their environment in a very positive way, we aim to give them a sense of local identity and strengthen their attachment to, and pride in their local heritage. The Wychwood Project is a  registered charity supported by the Friends of Wychwood.
