Northiam Conservation Society's Orchard

Accessed via Orchard Gate, just off Main Street at the doctors’ surgery end, the site is a former cherry orchard and one of the original trees is still standing. With the agreement of the Parish Council, Northiam Conservation Society has planted more than 60 new fruit trees here, including rare and heritage varieties with a connection to Sussex.  Many of them were grafted specially for the orchard.

At the very top end of the orchard field,  the Northiam Conservation Society has also planted a Jubilee Nuttery to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth ll in 2022. Here, you will find almond and Kentish cobnut trees.

In between the Orchard and the Nuttery are rows of cider apple trees, and surrounding the orchard is a hedge of native species selected to encourage pollinators and provide food and habitat for birds, small mammals and insects. 

You are welcome to walk around or picnic in the orchard at any time. Please take home  litter, pick up dog mess, and of course please do not climb on the trees or light fires or barbecues!
