Thornbury Community Orchard

This is a small walled area between the stream and the footpath to the east of Gloucester Road, managed by Thornbury Orchard Group (TOG) under a volunteers agreement with South Gloucestershire Council.

The orchard contains several fruit trees including apples and a plum tree, some old, some new, plus soft fruit and a medlar tree.

Please enjoy its beauty, keep dogs on a lead and respect the fruit trees, soft fruit and wildlife. Please keep to the footpaths as we like to keep some areas wild to support biodiversity.

If you want to get more involved contact Thornbury Orchard Group by e-mail below.

The fruit will be ripe at various times in the summer and autumn. We sometimes leave surplus apples by the Orchard gate for people to take away. In August 2022 our noticeboard was erected by the gate and we use this to let people know which fruit is ripe and when.

Please do not pick if we have not said it is ripe and even than leave plenty of fruit for others. This is not a commercial orchard.

Early in the year we often thin out the fruit to stop the trees being over laden and allow fruit to mature properly without over crowding. If suitable we will leave some of this for visitors to take and cook for say apple sauce. This is not a signal that all the apples are ripe and ready to be picked it is just our normal management of the trees.
