The manor house surrounded by blossoming damson trees

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.
