Autmn in the Forest of Wychwood

Back to Guided Walks page

There is only one Public Footpath across the Wychwood Forest but we have permission to leave this Right of Way for a circular walk through normally inaccessible parts. Mostly level or undulating ground with ne short steep section. Return across Cornbury Deer Park. Please bring a packed lunch.

Wychwood was a Royal Forest in Saxon times, enlarged following the Norman Conquest. Now much reduced in area it is still an area of varied woodland with rides [or lights] and open spaces with much historical interest.


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
