A secluded spot behind houses, popular with dog walkers heading out to the fields on Round Hill. A site steeped in history - Round Hill was the site of heavy fighting during the First Battle of Newbury in 1643.
Of the 17 trees, 10 are local Berkshire varieties.
In April 2021 we planted 13 more fruit trees, including 2 pears, 2 plums and a damson with a small group of volunteers in 4 sessions.
