11. Orchard

The orchard was created in 2021 as part of the Valleys Regional Park project. The formal orchard area is a mixture of apples, pears, plums and cherries in traditional and welsh heritage varieties. 

The informal area is designed with wildlife in mind with native fruit trees like hawthorn and spindle.  The blossom of the fruit trees will benefit our pollinators like bumblebees in early spring.  Once established the fruit will be used in our visitor Centre café and for people to take home.
