The Wychwood Project's exhibition "Discovering Wychwood: Living and Working in a Royal Forest" will be on display in Charlbury Museum from Easter Saturday (31 March) 2018.

Find out what your life would have been like if you lived in West Oxfordshire in 1851 when it was still a Royal Hunting Forest. How would you have lived, worked and spent your recreation time? Find out what happened to the Royal Forest, how it came to a sudden and dramatic end and how its fortunes shaped the area we know today.

Charlbury Museum is housed in part of the Corner House in Market Street OX7 3PN in the centre of the town. Between Easter and September it is open:

Saturdays: 10.30 am to 12.30 pm
