Tideswell Community Orchard & Wildflower Meadow was created for the whole of the Tideswell & District community
as a green space to share & enjoy fairly & freely
 
Do you have a "passion for a pippin", love damson jam & plum crumble 
or still remember the first apple you ever scrumped? 
maybe you just love apple blossom in springtime and fruit in  autumn
If so, come come and explore our site, read about our traditional and heritage apple & fruit trees, follow our photo diary and even try out some of our recipes
