RESIDENTS of Camelford and the surrounding areas are being encouraged to help themselves to apples and quinces at the community orchard.

The orchard was planted 13 years ago and since then, due to careful management and work, is now ready for the public.

Situated along the road towards Lanteglos and just past Bowood, it is signposted ‘Camelford Parish Cemetery’.

Although only for pedestrian access, there is space for a car outside the entrance before going in and helping yourself. The town council, who are behind the orchard, would love to see photographs from people’s experience to be shared online.

To do so, either email [email protected] or visit
