Wolds End Orchard Open this Weekend!

Apr 30, 2021 | Community Announcements

You are warmly invited to visit Wolds End Orchard this long weekend 1-3 May, when they will have the gate open each day between 10am and 4pm.

You will be very welcome to pop in and see what local volunteers have been up to over the last five months rejuvenating an ancient orchard after a period of neglect – and enjoy Blossom Time.

The Orchard is located on the corner of Aston Road and Back Ends – just a few minutes‘ stroll from the High Street, Chipping Campden.

We are beginning to see leaves and buds unfurl, and blossom appear across the Orchard: pears and plums first, then the apples.  We have a huge variety of birds, bees and butterflies all enjoying the three acres, along with evidence of rabbits, bats and other small mammals.

Over 20 new small trees have been planted in the last few months, most by local people and families who helped Volunteers with this exciting project. Many of these tiny trees are now in leaf – a real joy to see.

The Volunteers also “discovered” four trees we didn’t know we had, they were so covered in bramble! These four veteran trees are now in bloom and looking fabulous.

This beautiful time of year is such an uplifting sight in these difficult times – not to be missed! – and the two new ‘dead hedges’ which are features you may not have come across before.

Please note:

  • It’s a natural environment, which is very uneven underfoot and with long grass and trip hazards including rabbit holes – so please wear appropriate footwear and watch your step.
  • We ask you to observe the government Covid-19 regulations in place at the time, for example in respect of social distancing and rules around the number of people who can safely gather.
  • The Orchard is also a Nature Reserve so dogs (exception assistance dogs) are not permitted, and please do not bring food or drink onto the site.
  • There is no parking on site – but it’s very close to Town, so easy to walk to!
