 Walks on Trust Land

  "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 and folded along the centre line.

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

Please note:

  • Dogs on short leads are normally welcome, but please consider the needs of the stock in the fields
  • Please clear up after your pet so that all can enjoy our land
  • Keep to recognised footpaths or field boundaries where possible, and
  • Respect the Countryside Code

If you have enjoyed our green spaces please support us by making a donation to the Oxford Land Fund to help us preserve and maintain Oxford’s Green Spaces.  Your support will help us Keep Oxford Green Forever.

Thank you.
