Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Witney Tiny Forest was planted on Saturday 14 March 2020 and was the UK's first Tiny Forest. It was planted by volunteers from Witney Town Council, Witney Land Army, the Wychwood project and local residents. The octagonal design of the forest was inspired by Witney's Church steeple. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
