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