Richard Cox grew the first Cox’s Orange Pippin in what is now Berkshire. Common Ground initiated the creation of a celebratory Community Orchard in Abany Park, Colnbrook, with Cox’s Orange Pippin trees and others.

Berkshire has produced a number of very successful nurserymen (famous names include Charles Ross) and new varieties of fruit, but old orchards and nurseries are being lost to housing and other developments.
