On Saturday 13th October 2012 10.30am to 2.00pm, there is the annual Beighton Orchard Apple Day where you can pick your own apples to eat or have them crushed to make your very own apple juice! Bring a carrier bag with you and you can take some home or just come to learn about our local varieties, many of which are featured in the orchard (most of which have also been replicated in the Heathlands Park Orchard – some literally as two teams of FOHP members took part in grafting and budding events at Beighton and we used their nursery plot before transplanting them into Heathlands). The event is free as is the parking on Robin Lane (just by the church).
Meet at Beighton Orchard – located off Robin Lane near the Methodist Chapel. Walk down the public footpath to the metal gates on the left (Beighton Orchard entrance).
