Community Orchards can not only offer an opportunity to plant local varieties of fruit, but also create a place for quiet contemplation and a refuge for wildlife. It is intended that the orchard will be open and accessible at all times; a place where local people can share its harvest and get involved with the orchard's maintenance, under the guidance of its owner, the Town Council.

Fruit varieties will consist of the following:
Apples -Baxter's Pearmain, Bedfordshire Foundling, Discover, Hitchin Pippin, James Grieve, Laxton's Fortune, Rivers Early Peach, Scarlet Pearmain, Warner's King, Winter Greening, Wyken Pippin, Young's Pinello
Pears - Jargonelle, Michaelmas Nelis
Plums - Marjorie's Seedling, Early Laxton's.
