The Orchard ...

Holds an Apple Day every year in October.




There's beautiful blossom to be seen on the trees right now.

Attractive wooden plaques identify the variety, Egremont Russet, a classic apple from the Victorian era.

This orchard is only small, but if you want to take a quick peek, or have a hearty breakfast in The Orchard restaurant, both are along the A272, parallel to the old West Grinstead Railway Station.

You may even get to hear, or better still see this dear little fella too!

Oh I love it - may have to check it out if I'm ever that way! My favourite place in Cambridge is the Orchard at Grantchester - sitting under the trees having afternoon tea is just so magical!

The apple blossoms are so pretty - I love this time of year and I also love the wonderful names of the apple varieties - so full of character and colour:)

there is something very wholesome about the word 'russet' - lovely! I ALWAYS wanted an orchard of my own...

Lovely pics
