Fineshade Community Orchard

15 Jan 2013

This old orchard at the Forestry Commission Top Lodge site has had little management for many years.

This grant was awarded to restore and extend this orchard and carry out a site survey. Old trees are being restored and new trees and bushes planted.

An area of former pine woodland which was felled several years is also being cleared for planting with the aid of another grant. This area will then be replanted over the next few years.
