Graven hill woods, Bicester

Old military vehicle at Graven hill woods, Bicester
21 August 2021

We discovered Graven hill woods during the lockdown and it is now one of our firm favourites for really rustic and natural walks. It is an ex army training ground with remnants of it visible, even today.. old barracks, old army vehicles, old and creepy huts, skeleton of wild animals etc  are just a few things we saw..! The pictures are from different walks as we do find something interesting every time we go

You could stay on the main routes or like us, just venture into the woods (and get lost)- in that case the ground is pretty uneven, grass etc overgrown, with muddy slides after rain, and I bet there must be bugs/grass snakes etc in the area, so please beware of all the hazards, cover yourself properly, wear your wellies and overalls/waterproofs, and be extremely careful

The land is apparently still owned by the mod but know one knows if access to the woods is permitted or not. We usually meet a few people as we walk through and /or cars parked around, so, it’s obviously not just us & It would have been marked as “no entry” by now, if that was the case, so I think we’re ok

🗺 Access and parking: We have tried different routes. We initially use to go through the residential area in Graven Hill, via the back of houses, but some residents used to look at us suspiciously/ unwelcoming, so I stopped doing that. We now go through the side road to David’s barracks (marked site D) from Aylesbury road (NOT the main entrance of Graven hill but further up from the round about). Park the car on the circular road near one of the entrances to the woods & climb up.. Another way is to drive over to the barriered dead end road in Graven hill itself and climb the hill to the main entrance. also admire some very beautiful houses if you go via the Graven hill housing property itself. There’s also a new playground near the circular road (which we have to go to explore with a boardwalk), close to the manned barriers, so you could park there
🎟 Free
🚻 No toilets
🍕No refreshments
🧺 Picnic would be difficult to pull off
🦽 Some parts doable with Buggy but the terrain is quite bumpy and muddy, with overgrown grass in places, so best avoided
🐕 Plenty of dog walkers
