Newly planted trees are in the foreground, in front of some scrubland. A wooded area then lies in front of the open fields and hills beyond. The sky is blue with a few clouds. A young boy can be seen from the side in the middle ground, standing next to a small mound of earth.up the hill.  The allotment gate is halfway up the hill on the right. There are currently a few plots available, so if you are interested, get in touch for more details.

In recent years, a Community Orchard was planted to enhance the allotments and to create a new community space. The orchard now boasts more than 30 fruit trees and has recently been expanded to create Coronation Wood, a copse of native British woodland trees, named to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III in May 2023. It provides a fabulous setting that all residents can use, tucked away with views over the village and the incredible vistas beyond.



The Millennium Wood

Located near the top of the village, at the top of Keytes Lane footpath, the Millennium Wood was established in 2000 on land donated by Michael Gaden, a local resident and farmer, and the Towler Trust.  The trees were purchased / sponsored by local people.  The wood is now a local facility for people to visit and enjoy the views.  Maintenance of the wood is looked after by the Parish Council. It can also be accessed via a path from the Longborough Road.
