This woodland derived its name from the nearby town of Wycombe. Wicumun is the Saxon name for the wooded valley of Wye which later became Wycombe. The woodland is classified as semi-natural and ancient and therefore dates back to before 1600AD and over the last few decades it has been recognised as an excellent example of a beech Chiltern woodland.

Wicumun Wood forms part of a much larger area called East Wood.

As you enter the woodland a wide glade stretches out in front of you. As you wander further into the woodland it is easy to disappear from sight as there is excellent ground cover, mostly natural regenerated beech but also holly which provides year-round leaf cover. There are some larger shared pathways through the centre of the wood and along the NW and SW boundaries. There are also numerous clearings throughout the wood, perfect for taking time to enjoy the surroundings. Some oak, sweet chestnut and holly trees have been planted recently along the central ride to create more variety. Mature beech trees tower above the woodland and you often see red kites circling overhead or perched in the upper limbs of these magnificent trees, deer were also seen in the wood during our recent visit.

Wicumun Wood is surrounded on three sides by private woodland and whilst a field lies to the north west.  Easily found and accessed due to an excellent stoned track.

The village of Stokenchurch is less than a mile from the woodland and has excellent shops.

Parish is Stokenchurch CP, district is Wycombe DC in Buckinghamshire.

Access   Is from the public highway at the gate then along a private forests track where there is a full right of way in perpetuity with maintenance according to use made.

Boundaries  Are the trackside, rows of free-standing posts along the two sides and the wood edge by the meadow.  There are blue marking on the posts and trees.
