A bumper harvest!
Our orchards, which contain no less than 756 different varieties of apple, have been producing great crops this year. As such our visitors have been sampling varieties such as Galloway Pippin, Queen Alexander and Red Ellison’s Orange.
A new Orchard Project kicks off in November of this year enabling local volunteers to get involved in the management, harvesting and, of course, the tasting of this very special collection of fruit trees!

New homes for wildlife.
Local Jeskyns volunteer, Mark Johnson, saw his hard work come to fruition this summer, when Rangers installed 20 of his handmade Dormouse nest boxes. A monitoring programme has now started and we hope to see the Dormice (which are a European Protected Species) start moving into them soon!
Mark has also made up three superb bat boxes which we hope to get installed on site over the coming months.
2m height barrier at Jeskyns car park entrance
In response to increased fly tipping and illegal encampments in the local area, a 2m height restriction is now in force at Jeskyns car park entrance.
We do appreciate that this will cause considerable inconvenience for a small minority of our visitors and offer our sincere apologies. Unfortunately the high risks and costs associated with the crimes of fly tipping and illegal encampment present us with no other choice and we hope that you will understand our reasoning.
