This is one of a group of three orchards which surround Wick Court – possibly one of the most amazing historic houses in Gloucestershire. It is used by the charity ‘ Farms for city children’ – providing working holidays for inner city kids – complete with orchard experiences!

The charity trustees for Wick Court invited the Gloucestershire Orchard Trust and TCTOP to get involved with restoring these very historic orchards. Maps show that the orchards have been there for a very long time and they are thought to contain some rare local varieties of fruit.
