Wychwood - A Castle Between the Worlds

Wychwood Castle
"The swan represents the divine intermediary between this world and the world of the Goddess, the Otherworld. It also represents the inner light of the spirit. As the swan wings its' way homeward, so, too, does our spirit throughout its' journeying seek to return home to the Source."
- Lorraine MacDonald

This site is dedicated to Sandy,
who was High Priestess
of Coven Ashesh Hekat for 13 years,
until a tragic accident took her from us.

It was her driving force and enthusiasm
which was the inspiration for bringing
Wychwood into being.

Sandy, we remember you with love.
