Where we work

The Wychwood Project works within the area that was once the Royal Hunting Forest of Wychwood. At Domesday in 1086, the forest of Wychwood covered much of what is now West Oxfordshire, England.

The term forest referred historically to areas where hunting rights were reserved for the Sovereign and in this area would have included meadows, cultivated open fields, heaths and downs as well as woodlands.
