"We've just had a delightful walk on the Boars Hill fields - very beautiful and a credit to OPT"

Since its foundation in 1927, Oxford Preservation Trust has sought to protect Oxford's green setting for the benefit of all. The Trust now cares for 1,000 acres of land in and around Oxford - some let to tenants and some maintained by the Trust as public amenity land. Public access is encouraged where ever this is compatible with good land management and practice. In keeping with sound environmental management, much of our land is grazed for at least part of the year.

On this page you will find downloadable details of a few self-guided walks across Trust land, but do look at our land map (below) to see where else you may like to walk. These printable sheets are designed to be printed back to back on A4 paper and folded along the centre line. Each walk has a different family activity on the final page. A separate print out of each activity can be found in the attachments section, enabling you to complete the same walk with a different activity.

You may also like to visit the Trust's nature reserves at Heyford Meadow and Wolvercote Lakes - walk routes can be found on information boards at the entrances.

If you have enjoyed our green spaces please support us by making a donation to help us preserve and maintain Oxford’s green spaces. Your support will help us keep Oxford green forever.

Thank you.
