GRAVEL SITE THREAT!
We have recently been informed that land adjacent to Nuneham Park has been identified as a potential site for gravel extraction.
The proposed area, approximately 2km long and 1km wide, comes within about 400m of the GRC boundary.
HELP SAVE THIS MAGNIFICENT OXFORDSHIRE LANDSCAPE BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
At the moment we are closed and beavering away behind the scenes on essential renovations so you can enjoy this magnificent place again as soon as possible.

Here is a short video update on the works:
Since 1993, the Global Retreat Centre near Oxford has welcomed thousands of people from across the world. The Centre offers residential and one-day retreats, as well as lectures, seminars and courses on meditation, personal growth and spiritual development.
It is administered by the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University UK – a registered charity since 1975. Around the world the Brahma Kumaris work in local communities in more than 120 countries, teaching Raja Yoga Meditation as a way of life to experience peace of mind and a positive approach to life. Locally, our services are offered via an extensive network of professional trained volunteers, right in the heart of communities.
Each one of us is a walking radiator. Mostly we radiate thoughts and attitudes. From deep within we radiate our state of being, and the essential, original and eternal state of every being is peaceful and loving.
But we block and distort this energy with our attachments. Attachments turn love into fear, peace into anger and then distort our attitudes and actions towards others.
This is neither relaxing for ourselves, or for those around us. Which is why detachment is the secret to living lightly and lovingly.
