Kingsfield Orchard Heritage Open Day

September 22, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

 

The site was part of ‘King’s Fields’ so called it is said because it was where King Richard set up his camp prior to the Battle of Gosford Green.

 

It appears on maps dated around 1860 with many trees and was divided into allotments which were for the use of Freemen of the City. Many old trees remain and some of the structure of the old site is still evident. The site has been neglected for many years having been isolated after the North-South road was built over part of it. It has been colonised by lots of different flora and fauna much of which we are trying to preserve. 
Work in progress restoring an old orchard/allotment site by Coventry Tree Wardens.
Site was completely overgrown and is being gradually cleared. Wardens will be on hand to guide visitors round the site and discuss progress.

Hope to have Apple pressing and traditional music.
