Welcome to the Friends of Lye Valley

Lye Valley

We are a group of people who are working to protect and preserve this internationally-important site for wildlife in the Headington area.

What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left,
O let them be left, wildness and wet;
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.

Gerard Manley Hopkins, ‘Inversnaid’
