Description

The walled garden at the back of the Hudson House Community Centre in Reeth has survived the use of the building as a bank for many years. The garden would have provided its original Victorian owner with fresh fruit and vegetables all year round. There would also have been a greenhouse for forcing early fruit but this is long gone. A local community group has taken over maintenance of the area and is restoring it to be a community orchard with traditional Yorkshire apple varieties.
