At our annual celebration of apples and orchard produce we will also have a display of vintage cars.
The Essex Austin 7 Club will display a range of vintage Austin 7s: from Chummies of the 1920s to Box Saloons, Rubys and Pearls of the 1930s.
In the walled kitchen garden, we invite visitors to press apple juice and taste it and a wide selection of apple and honey cakes and other produce. There should also be garden produce for sale.
The East of England Apples and Orchard Project will be on hand to show heritage varieties of fruit and will help visitors identify the variety of their own apples. Saffron Walden Beekeepers will also join us and show how their bees live and make honey in their hive.
Children’s activities will be apple/bee related!
We hope visitors will be able to enjoy the early autumn warmth in the Gardens and while away the afternoon singing along to the toons of the Bishop’s Stortford Ukelele Society.
