10. Orchard walk and video

During the project we organised several walks to study the landscape. The orchard walk in April 2006 grew into a much larger project and resulted in the production of the video "Beyond the Blossom: a survey of a traditional plum orchard on Knowle Hill in the Vale of Evesham". Filmed over the course of a full year, this video records the impact of the seasons on a traditional Vale orchard. With the loss of plum varieties and orchards disappearing, it chronicles our vanishing local traditions in an entertaining and informative way.
