The Parish Council have a new 5 year management plan beginning Summer 2014.


There is a regular bus service to Woodstock from Oxford. Take the A44 to Woodstock. Turn right onto Upper Brookhill; then right onto Brookhill; then left into Glyme Close. Take the first left, then the first right (all Glyme Close) to reach the line of garages at the back of the development. Park by the garages at the Glyme Close entrance to the site. There are three points of access, all of them on foot only, to the meadows: (i) from the A44 (The Causeway) just before the bridge and the Black Prince Pub; (ii) 50 meters from the Western end of Brookhill via a short access lane and locked gate; and (iii) by a gate beside the garages at the end of Glyme close.
