Wichelstowe Background

The site is approximately 309 hectares in total spread across East, West and Middle Wichel.

The name was chosen following extensive consultation and draws upon historical references; ‘Wichel’ is the original name for the area, recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, whilst ‘Stowe’ is an old English name for a meeting place and thus the name ‘Wichelstowe’ was decided upon.
