SU5991 : The End of an Orchard

taken 7 years ago, near to Brightwell-Cum-Sotwell, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

The End of an Orchard
The End of an Orchard
Not just literally, in that we're down the end, by the gate, but that this old cherry orchard doesn't look to have much of a future. The trees are all dead or very sad looking and there are weeds everywhere.
Fruit growing has hit a total slump round here in the last 20 years with acres of orchard either dug up or going to neglect like this.
The best fruit here is now in the hedge where delicious self set plums and damsons are growing profusely all along the path as you can see in the front here.
Nobody is taking them though. There's kilos of fruit just going to waste. Help yourself.
