Hartpury Heritage Trust

Hartpury is a rural parish of 3,500 acres with a population of about 700. It is situated about five miles north of the city of Gloucester, and lies within the Leadon Vale.

Hartpury Heritage Trust owns the Old Chapel Hall alongside the Church, Hartpury Orchard Centre with the National Perry Pear Collection, and the Bee Shelter in the churchyard.

National Perry Pear Centre

The orchards at Hartpury contain the National Perry Pear collection – at least two examples of every known variety of perry pear. The attractive oak framed Orchard Centre at Hartpury acts as a visitor information point, as well as a unique specialist centre for training in the production of cider, perry, juice and orchard fruit-based products.

Days Cottage Orchard Skills Centre

Day’s Cottage Apple Juice is a family run business, based on the family farm, and reviving a long tradition of cider and perry making in Gloucestershire. The Orchard Skills Centre is an exciting venture started there in 2009. Gloucestershire Orchard Trust received a grant from the Gloucestershire Environment Trust, making possible the establishment of an outdoor centre for running workshops on all aspects of orchard management and other rural skills.
