Orchard gallery

Our orchard is a former school playing field of 1.5 acres. The images on this page show how the orchard looked at the very start – mostly an empty field with a few woodland trees.

We have now planted 134 fruit trees and new hedges (see the pictures on the home page). The site also contains a forest school area managed by Ashdown Primary School, a biodiversity garden (under construction); and in time we hope to add soft fruit cages and wildlife ponds – so crucial for biodiversity.
