Finding your way around GOT’s websites

Our old website contained a very wide range of information – and we hope to emulate that on this new site. But to ease navigation we have split the website up into four themed sites. This one is our main site – you can read about the others below:

Specialist websites

Other parts of our old website, the sections covering Fruit Varieties, Local Orchards and Orchard Advice will be rebuilt as subsites alongside the new main site – these are also being built at present and available via the links below.  Note that these sites will take longer to build, so these will be developed over the summer of 2017.

Navigation

Primary navigation for each website (the main one and the specialist ones) is via the menu below the logo at the top of the page. This will be a bar across the page on a wide screen or a drop-down on a smaller screen or phone. The menu above the logo has short-cut links to the various specialist sites and back to the main site.

The Side-bar

The side-bar on the right will provide short-cuts and feeds to our blog, facebook, twitter feeds etc – formatting is not yet finalised. The side-bar will be at the end of the page if you’re viewing this on a phone or tablet.

A note on the logo

We have recently reviewed our logo, and have been using some different variants across different parts of the website. This one (left) is the one we think we will be adopting from June 2017.  There will be more information on this in the News pages soon.

The OrchardMarketplace website

The future of the Marketplace website, currently managed by GOT at https://orchardmarketplace.org.uk/ in association with the Orchard Network is under review and an announcement will be made soon.

Sponsorship:

Creation of these websites is being supported by the Three Counties Traditional Orchards Project, which is a Heritage Lottery funded project.
