On Saturday 12th January 2019 a community orchard was planted in Priory meadow. This meadow, next to Priory wood (which has many apple trees), already had five mature walnut trees so was an obvious choice of location.
Although the orchard was planned and organised by "A group of Pauline's Swamp-related people" (presumably trustees of Pauline's Swamp - to which I am an advisor) I was not informed or asked for advice. The result is an orchard mostly on the most vigorous rootstocks available so many are unlikely to fruit for 5 or 6 years (i.e. before 2024) and which will eventually reach a height of 20-30 ft. So you will need a very tall ladder to reach most of the apples and pears. There is one Bramley on M106 which shoud grow to about 12-15 ft. The plums and gages are generally smaller trees anyway.
