About the Site
Like many old orchards, Turner’s Orchard is full of wildlife, including many a variety of common birds (such as chaffinch and dunnock), butterflies (including large white), and wild flowers. The apple trees are of the large traditional type, rather than the dwarf varieties you see in modern orchards. The grass is allowed to grow long in summer to provide habitat for a variety of insects.
Drive into Littlebourne and turn into Nargate Street (signposted Wickhambreaux). After about 150 metres you will see a layby on your right for parking. Take the footpath opposite the layby. The gate to the orchard is about 30 metres on your left.
Route numbers 11, 13, 13A, 14, 14A and 544 all go through Littlebourne. The no. 11 goes right past the site entrance on Nargate Street.
