We are delighted to announce that we have now completed the acquisition of Henley Bank Orchard, at Brockworth. It has been a long process transferring the ownership from the developers, but is now finalised!
The orchard, adjoining the new developments along Mill Lane Brockworth, is to be managed as a community orchard rather than public open space, and we will be working up plans for management and access soon.
The 2.5 acres (1 hectare) site, with many mature perry pears, is very overgrown at present so we are not encouraging visitors at all yet, but will be taking members there after our AGM in Brockworth on 14th May.
The pictures below were taken in March 2021.
