Winter pruning, Brigham January 21st   iCal entry for this event

Our 2018 winter pruning workshop will be at Brigham, near Cockermouth. Our host will be Catherine Grezo. The trees are fairly mature and need some remedial pruning. Based on the successful format previous years, this will be a structured "learning" event, so the  plan is  a late morning to early afternoon format with a briefing session (under cover) to start with and lunch (attendees to bring sandwiches, but hot drinks will be provided) also under cover. The pruning itself will be small groups, each with an experienced "leader", tackling specific trees. We will start at 11am with the briefing session and will continue to mid-afternoon, weather permitting. There will be dry place (garage) to shelter from any inclement weather, but it is not heated.

Some equipment will be supplied but please bring your own secateurs if you have them. Please ensure you bring gardening gloves and wear suitable footwear. Also, please note that there are some steep steps up to the orchard. A full risk assessment is attached.

The address is:
Ashcroft 63 High Brigham
CA13 0TG


Brigham is located 2 and a half miles west of Cockermouth.

Travelling west on the A66 from Cockermouth in the direction of Workington after the A66/A595 roundabout take the first left sign posted Brigham.

Pass the church on the left, around a sharp right hand bend and immediately turn left.

Travel up the hill between the stone walls and turn left at the T junction at the top of the hill.

Ashcroft is the first house on the right just before the village shop.  The house is painted white with bay windows and a roadside hedge.

Access via the steps and wooden gate to the left of the house.

Parking outside the house is limited due to the narrow road outside the house, but some parking is available in the village "square" opposite the shop.

PLEASE BOOK BELOW - it is free to members (select cash £0 at checkout) but booking enables us to know how many are coming for catering purposes and means we can contact you if plans change.
