AONB: Lincolnshire Wolds

Orchard Project

The Lincolnshire Wolds orchard project engaged 47 owners of old orchards, a BAP priority habitat, surveyed 23 sites and added 3.11ha of orchards to the habitat inventory.

It was important to inspire the orchard owners and we spent time discussing the orchard, its history and management, raising awareness of the crop, biodiversity and cultural value.

Five additional sites were added to GLNP habitat inventory for future investigation – a result of increased awareness around traditional orchards.
