Wychwood Hobgoblins & Fire Catchers

Join us, as we tour the Evenlode Valley. Starting at Ascott-under-Wychwood, renowned for its 13c castle, now part of the manor, we pass through Knighton's Copse toward the infamous Wychwood Forest. Grade 1 listed for conservation, with many legends of witchcraft and dark arts, who knows if we'll come across one of Witney's brewery name sakes, Hobgoblins.

Walking on to Finstock and then Ramsden, known locally for it's Roman Villa and significant Roman archaeological finds. We then return to Ascott, skirting the forests south west side, for a well earned cold pint at The Swan.

Supporting Hearing Dogs:

£7 will go towards running the event and the remainder of your sign up fee will go to support Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

"We train clever dogs to help deaf people. To alert them to important and life-saving sounds they would otherwise miss – such as the smoke alarm, alarm clock and even a baby's cry. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives, and can even save them.."
