Welcome to The Wychwood On-Line

This is the site for The Wychwood Magazine, serving the communities of
The Wychwoods in the Cotswolds for 35 years!
The magazine is published every two months, by the community for the community and our friends, with 68 pages, packed with features, articles, news and short stories about life in the Wychwoods.


Latest issue: June – July 2017


Winter is past, a time of hibernation and closed doors, moving into spring when colour reappears, neighbours are rediscovered, and now the summer has arrived (apologies if you are reading this during an unseasonal downpour!) Our magazine closely reflects this change of seasons with so much to report, so much to look forward to in this lovely corner of the Cotswolds.

This is a time to get out and about whether it takes readers into the garden or out into the countryside. While you are out, our photographers have been into the villages taking shots of what should be familiar places, but perhaps from unusual viewpoints, turning this into a photo quiz to tax us all. Articles inside will also reflect on sporting activities including running and motorbike racing with some noteworthy achievements from our residents. Details of the Milton fete, perhaps the social highlight of the year, are also included.

There really is no excuse not to go outside and enjoy everything that our locality has to offer; let our magazine inspire you.
