Wychwood Wild Garden is 12.5 acres of woodland, ponds and avenues left untouched to encourage wildlife and plant growth. It was likely built in 1860 as a pleasure garden for Shipton Court, originally with the addition of a large circular walk where the cricket ground is today.
The recommended route for the sound walk takes you down the lime tree avenue, around the large pond to the giant Cedar tree, around the round pond, down past (and over) the waterfalls, and around the woodland.
Here there are 100 lime trees, some over 250 years old.
The Big Tree is a over 300 year old Cedar of Lebanon.
The ducks enjoy hanging out in this area with Big Tree because kindly humans provide bread and oats.
