This website and blog provides information about Ladywell Fields, a large park and former watermeadows that runs along the banks of the River Ravensbourne between Ladywell and Catford in South East London
On Saturday we had our long anticipated Orchard volunteering day--this once there was no rain forcing the cancellation, and the pleasant weather was matched by pleasant company. Eleven years since its inception, the orchard now has some beautiful, well established fruit trees there--even though the odds are often stacked against them with attack by animals and incidence of vandalism. Those who volunteered were rewarded with detailed insights into the art of tree care, and had the opportunity to get boots muddy and hands dirty if so inclined. Many thanks to all volunteers who took part, and to Caroline for organising and leading the event.
