Reimagining Orchards

Over the next three years we will be embarking on a project which will extend the orchards creating a special space for both wildlife and visitors to enjoy. The orchards have somewhat shrunk since the Victorian era with land being used to graze cattle and sheep. We now want to take Brockhampton back to the time fruit production lay at the very heart of the estate and create more surrounding wildflower meadows to help decreasing bee and butterfly numbers.

600 years of history at Brockhampton  

Brockhampton is an ancient estate nestled in the dramatic Herefordshire hills. It has been utilised since the early Middle Ages and features a wealth of interesting features such as a ruined Norman chapel. Despite being so old, the manor has changed little over the centuries.
