SPRING UPDATE:

Oakley Wood is now being managed by a partnership between Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, Warwick District Council and Friends of Oakley Wood. The long term aim is to restore the wood to native broadleaf and thus increase the diversity of the flora and fauna of the wood.

FOW have their AGM on Tuesday March 4th 7.30 pm at Bishops Tachbrook Sports and Social Club. The business of the AGM will be conducted as speedily as possible and then Karl Curtis of WWT will tell us about ‘Warwickshire Woods’. Come along and listen – membership is free ! Refreshments will be provided.

On Saturday 12th April FOW will be holding their 3rd Woodland craft day in Oakley wood. This will be your chance to see some traditional crafts such as wood-carving and charcoal making and to watch a blacksmith at work. We hope to get the horse loggers who have worked in the wood over the last few years to make an appearance as well as sessions on den building and fire lighting which should attract children of any age.

If you would like to help ensure the future of Oakley Wood, then please visit our web-site for information about the group and a diary of activities.

Friends of Oakley Wood (FOW) are a group formed in 2007 when Oakley Wood came up for sale. FOW lobbied Warwick District Council to persuade them to buy the wood and preserve it as an area of ancient woodland with access for walkers and nature lovers. We are now a group which organises various activities in the woods throughout the year.

In 2011 we were successful in our application for a Leader Grant to fund Horse Logging and other Rural crafts in the wood.
