Visit Wytham Woods

Wytham Woods were bequeathed to the University in 1943, and are now one of the most studied areas of woodland in the world. The bequest was made by the ffennell family after the death of their only child, Hazel, on condition that the woodlands were also left for the enjoyment of the people of Oxford. A permit system now allows walkers access to over 32 km of footpaths and there are regular guided walks to enable visitors to see and learn about the Woods’ wildlife.
