About

The Millennium Orchard is one of the largest, non-commercial orchards of northern varieties of apples in England. It is a place of interest for archaeologists, historians, fruit growers, ecologists, beekeepers, walkers, picnickers and everyone who loves to spend time in the countryside.

History
Beverley Parks is part of Old Hall Farm smallholding, lying within a former deer park that surrounded much of Beverley during Medieval times. The site dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086, when the Archbishops of York owned the manor. It is also a site of local archaeological importance with earthworks and ridge and furrow still in evidence. The Millennium Orchard was planted in 2000 to celebrate the new millennium in partnership with the East Yorkshire Federation of Women's Institutes. Beverley Parks was designated a Local Nature Reserve in 2006 in recognition of its wildlife value and importance to the local community.
