The Forest of Wychwood

This will be a relaxed circular walk from Charlbury, taking in the ancient forest of Wychwood and surrounding countryside. Wychwood is the largest continuous wood in Oxfordshire, even though it is now much smaller than it was in medieval times, and provides some of the area’s finest walking. We might spot some of the deer that roam the woodland – there are three different kinds!
