Apple orchard by Rail Trail, Beck Hole
In Victorian times Beck Hole was famous for its many orchards. Visitors would come from miles around to enjoy the walks & waterfalls and take tea beneath the apple trees. In 2009 the Goathland School celebrtated its bi-centenary. The Beckhole Woodland and Heritage Foundation decided to mark the occasion by planting an apple orchard on land kindly provided by the Ainley family, formerly of Firs Farm.

With help from The Tree Council, donations from Goathland Post Office, the North York Moors National Park and collection boxes at The Birch Hall Inn, money was raised to prepare the orchard and plant 20 different heritage apple trees, each of which has been adopted by a child from Goathland School.

The trees were planted on 1st March 2009 and are regularly weeded and pruned by their guardians.
