The pear walk features 27 mature pear trees (planted in 94) espaliaerd over a pipe frame. This has been a great experiment. The variety used was Beurre Bosc and two pollinators, but over the years other varieties have been grafted on.
In mid October the naked branches from winter burst into masses of white flowers and if the weather is kind the pear walk sets an abundance of fruit. With Lesley's love of preserving they are enjoyed all year round.
