this is the orchard which is very special



Whittingham Hospital was built in the last quarter of the 19th century.  Its orchard which we help to maintain still contains over 200 trees with 18 varieties of apples and 3 of pears.  We have replaced some of the lost trees with trees of similar varieties.  The hospital was self-sufficient in fruit from the orchard from October to May.  The following are the varieties to be found in it:
Annie Elizabeth
Bramley’s Seedling
Crimson Bramley
Early Victoria
Edward VII
Ellison’s Orange
Golden Spire
Howgate Wonder
Keswick Codlin
Lane’s Prince Albert
Laxton’s Superb
Lord Derby
Newton Wonder
Scotch Bridget
Warners King
Early Portugal
Louise Bonne
Pitmaston Duchess
