Visit to Lyveden New Bield

On Saturday, 15th September, members of the Club gathered at Lyveden New Bield for a short walk in the nearby woods, prior to a visit to see the tree purchased in celebration of our 75th anniversary.  Part of the walk was on the Lyveden Way and the rest in Tresham's deer park.

After the walk we were joined by other Club members and went down to the Orchard planted with over 300 fruit trees of varieties known in the late 17th century which were grown mainly for their medicinal properties.  The Club's tree is a variety of apple called Golden Harvey.  Although the tree is still small, those who wished could taste its fruit as it had two small apples on it (the season has been poor this year in the whole of the orchard).  In future years we will be able to visit and, maybe, enjoy more of its produce!
