Phoebe Wood is a ten-acre site comprising woodland and wetland walks along the banks of the River Ock, as well as picnic facilities.

To enter Phoebe Woods, head straight down the animal walkway and through the gate at the end. You will enter into an open space with a few statues and picnic areas. Follow the signs to enter into the woodlands on your left and (carefully) cross the track and go through the gates. Here you’ll also find a map to help you find your way around.

Phoebe Wood was planted in 2005 to commemorate the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar and is part of the National Trafalgar Wood Project. The wood is open to the public and can be accessed at the bottom of the Animal Walkway.

The wood contains native British species including Oak, Ash, Poplar and Willow and forms part of a wetland area alongside the River Ock.

Our aim is to build on the resources that Millets Farm Centre already provides by adding a tranquil woodland walk alongside the River Ock, adding an exciting extra dimension to the facilities already on the site” says Tony Carter of Millets Farm Centre.

He adds: “This is a very appropriate way of celebrating Nelson’s victory in this bi-centenary year, with a conservation project in the Oxfordshire countryside”.

Dogs are welcome, on leads, in Phoebe Woods.
