21 April, 2018 (All day)
View across part of the former Wychwood Forest, to Leafield village

A few places are still available for the Society for Landscape Studies field weekend in Oxfordshire on 21-22 April, visiting Wychwood (Saturday) and the Chilterns (Sunday). 

The Wychwood day (led by Simon Draper and Simon Townley of VCH Oxfordshire) comprises a guided walk around parts of the former royal forest of Wychwood and some of the villages on its fringe, including a visit to the remains of Ascott-under-Wychwood's medieval motte-and-bailey castle, and a look at some of the Crown Estate farmsteads erected after the forest's clearance in the 1850s.

The Chilterns day includes a guided tour of vernacular buildings in Chalgrove (led by David Clark of the Oxfordshire Buildings Record), a private visit to the 15th-century Chalgrove Manor, and (after lunch) a visit to English Farm, close to spectacular views down the Chiltern scarp.
