Orchard Heritage

The Orchard Project endeavours to record details from Kent's rich orchard heritage by collecting images and oral accounts from the past.

The slideshow below will play on a loop. However, if you find the slides moving on too quickly, pause on any slide.

Oral History Collection

The following audio interviews were recorded by Bob Baxter over a series of years, recording the experiences of local people involved in the cherry growing industry.
