Welcome to The Wychwood On-Line

This is the site for The Wychwood Magazine, serving the communities of
The Wychwoods in the Cotswolds for 36 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 2018


The Wychwood Magazine has a wide coverage; 1,200 copies are distributed across the area and further afield for postal subscribers. We take an interest in villages close to the Wychwoods including Fifield and Lyneham but the focus of attention tends to be on Milton, Ascott and Shipton. “Which one is the best?” I sometimes hear. Well here’s a few background facts: Ascott has the best folk singing group; Shipton has the best Wild Garden; Milton has the best fete; Milton also has the library and the most shops; Ascott has the finest local history tapestry in the community, although Fifield may well beg to differ; Shipton has the best church choir.
I could go on. Clearly, that opening question has no right answer. All our communities have a great deal to offer to the Wychwoods as a whole. Our strength is in our diversity. Which makes me sad when I hear, admittedly only occasionally, of one or other of our villages being ‘talked down’ for some perceived failing. Everyone has their allegiances but it is together that we thrive, together that we present a positive view of the Wychwoods to outsiders.
So, read on, and enjoy the strength in diversity which our communities have to offer to the Wychwoods.
