Chesham Community Orchard Project

Chesham Community Orchard Project (COP) Maps

As part of our project to get a community orchard started in Chesham we are mapping the locations of known orchards in the area. The orchards in the map shown below have been digitised from DEFRA's 'magic maps' website (www.magic.defra.gov.uk), which hosts publicly available data on lots of amazing environmental features all over the UK. Most of these orchards are on private property, so they can't be visited without the permission of the land owner.

So far only the more central Chesham areas have been mapped, but the map will be updated so that the surrounding villages are also included. If you know of any orchards, or fruit trees that you would like to be added to the map, or you have any comments please contact us at CheshamCOP@gmail.com

In the future we would also like to add a similar map showing orchards in Chesham over 100 years ago – so watch this space.
