Lower Windrush Valley Project



The Lower Windrush Valley covers 28 square

kilometres of West Oxfordshire, incorporating

the floodplain of the River Windrush from

Witney to where it joins the River Thames

at Newbridge.


Over the last 60 years the landscape character of

the valley has been transformed by mineral extraction

with large areas of the riverside pasture transformed into a mosaic of open water. With mineral extraction set to continue for many years to come the Lower Windrush Valley Project (LWVP) was created by Oxfordshire County Council to create and implement an environmental strategy for this area.
