On 18th January 2020 we held a very successful and well attended wassail in Manor Woods Orchard. The occasion was MC’d by the Wassail Master, with assistance from the Orchard King and Queen, and musical accompaniment was provided by the St Paul’s Wassailers. The sun shone throughout. The fruit trees were anointed with apple juice, apple cakes were eaten and jolly good time was had by all.
In February 2019 a research team from the School of Geographical Studies at the University of Bristol investigated soil quality in the orchard at Manor Woods Valley.
Their summary report outlines their findings.
