Racehill Community Orchard

Racehill Community Orchard is a three acre site in East Brighton overlooking Whitehawk and the sea.

Over the past number of years over 200 fruit trees and thousands of native hedgerow species have been planted so that in future years locals can enjoy the free fruit harvest. Activities take place all year round and include: Scything, scrub clearance, mulching, litter clearance, pruning and general caring for the trees.
The site is in East Brighton in Whitehawk and is accessible from both Swanborough Drive and Wilson Avenue via a little path which runs next to Racehill Allotments.  Parking is more convenient on the Wilson Avenue entrance. Map available here.
