The Patsy Wood Trust is supporting the regeneration of the Stansfeld Park woodland

We are delighted to have been awarded a grant from the Patsy Wood Trust to support the first phase of our regeneration of the woodland at Stansfeld Park.

This first phase of regeneration will involve major works on the ponds to remove silt, improve water quality, replant the area around the ponds, and improve access with walkways, steps, pond dipping platforms and bridges.

Patsy Wood was an inspirational environmentalist who was born and raised in Oxford and set up the Environment Information Exchange. The Patsy Wood Trust aims to continue her spirit of generous support for projects and activities that she cared about – the environment, conservation, training and education. The Trust’s development at Stansfeld Park ticks all these boxes.

We are working with our advisors the Freshwater Habitats Trust and the Sylva Foundation on the regeneration of the woodland. As well as being an outdoor learning area for the Science Oxford Education Centre, it will be a fantastic new resource for the local community to enjoy too.
