An off the cuff visit to Cockington, happened to be on the same day as the ‘Apple Day’. We was only going to visit the Orchard and have a Clotted Cream Tea.
The ancient cider press was put into action with some tastings available. However the scratter behind was very much modern plastic.
A country fete is never complete without some Morris dancers. These strangely being women, as traditionally they were always men.
Just a typical stall selling preserves and the likes.
I finally found the ‘National Pecan Collection’ They seemed to have been planted very close together, with whats looks like some have been thinned out.
With all the song and dance going on and masses of people mingling around, I wondered into the orchard. There was not a sole about. Yet again no trees were labeled up, and they looked decidedly uncared for. It definitely seemed a bit disjointed with the orchard and the ‘Apple Day’.
