TCTOP – Worcestershire

The Worcestershire Hub

In Worcestershire our skills hub is the Worcestershire County Council Countryside Service, led by Wade Muggleton.

Wade is helped by the Vale of Evesham Landscape Heritage Trust and Worcester City Orchard Workers, Arthur and Tony.

They are helping to restore orchards in Pershore, Rochford, Tenbury Wells and Alfrick.

The county’s orchard heritage

Worcestershire is home to some of the Three Counties finest old orchards, including the plum and stone fruit orchards of Pershore and the Evesham Vale, celebrated at Pershore’s August plum festival. To the North West are the famous apple orchards of Tenbury, also the home of the Mistletoe Fair in December, when huge quantities of mistletoe are brought into the town for sale to traders from all over the country, signalling the start of the Christmas season to locals.
