Wytham Woods and Hill End celebrate centenary of outdoor education
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Wytham Estate – a joint celebration of the University’s Wytham Woods and the Hill End Outdoor Education Centre
A special programme of events across the Wytham Estate will celebrate the rich history of these much-loved places, while looking forward to a future of inspirational outdoor education for new generations of learners.
Anniversary events started in January, with the planting of the first of 100 new trees that will eventually form an avenue marking the hundredth anniversary of the ffennell family’s acquisition of Wytham Woods – visit the Oxford Mail website to read more.
The avenue will create a new woodland wildlife corridor between the two sides, and demonstrate a lasting commitment to working in partnership. The Woods team will be encouraging visiting schools to get involved in the tree-planting project, which will be funded by donations from the local community and beyond. The team hope to have most of the trees planted in 2020, with the rest done next year.
