The Community Orchard is a short walk from the centre of Wenvoe occupying land on the Wenvoe Playing Fields. The orchard itself has around 25 trees including a selection of apples, plums and pears along with medlar, quince and mulberry. Varieties include Ashmeads Kernel, Ribston Pippin, Opal, Tom Putt, Bardsey and Grenadier. You could also find some crabapples, mirabelle plums and hazel.
There are other wildlife habitats to look at including a pond, stream, newly planted hedgerow, old hedgerows and mature trees including oak, willow, field maple, ash and horse chestnut.
A noticeboard gives additional information and on the reverse of this is a large bee hotel.
