Welcome to Hogacre

Hogacre Common is a fourteen acre site less than a mile from the centre of Oxford, to the south-west of the City and within its fertile flood plains. Bounded by streams on three sides and only accessible by foot, it features field, woodland and aquatic habitats and hosts low carbon community activities and events.

Formally the sports ground for Corpus Christi college, it has been leased to the community since 2011 for a jar of honey a year!
