About the reserve

The site is on a steep, sheltered slope, facing south-east. It had clearly been an orchard for some time, as there are some large old apple trees present. Several quite old box trees along the south-east boundary may also have been introduced. The central area has been planted with a number of standard cider apples and perry pears of traditional varieties. An old stone barnĀ forms an attractive feature in the centre of the orchard and this is now a bat roost. Thickets of raspberries and bramble provide nectar and pollen over a long period in summer for a variety of pollinating insects
