The Blossom Trail

Many years ago The Orchard Tea Room & Farm Shop orchard on Redmoor Lane was part of the Wisbech Blossom Trail. This was back in the days when Wisbech was surrounded by orchards and the Bramley apple was king making many a fruit grower's fortune. People would travel from far and wide to see the blossom.

Sadly those days have long gone and Wisbech has lost not only its' Blossom Trail but also most of the orchards featured on it.

But our little orchard survives and visitors are welcome to come and see the blossom. Eight acres of apples and plums on the outskirts of Wisbech down Redmoor Lane we're just a few 100 yards from the A47.

Our plum trees are in full blossom now and as you can see from the picture below the apple blossom will soon be out.

The blossom can be viewed from the comfort of our Tea Room or you can take a leisurely walk around part of the orchard that is open to customers.
