The Hanwell and Norwood Green Orchard Trail currently stretches from the Southall borders at Top Lock and Glade Lane Riverside Park along the Grand Union Canal corridor to the Brentford borders at Osterley Lock Cottage Garden, covering over 2 miles with publicly accessible community orchards in over 12 locations with more than 100 trees of more than 50 varieties.
Our activities begun in Trumpers Field, Jubilee Meadow and Blackberry Corner, collectively known as the Hanwell Meadows. (Click for an overview map.) We often think of the meadows as our spiritual home and often meet in the meadows for social events or other activities. Approach to the meadows is on foot through the entrance at Trumper’s Way next to the railway, across the bottom lock of the Hanwell flight of locks or across locks #92 and #93.
An annotated map is shown below. Click the map for a larger version, or see our mapping page about how we map our trees on public media and how to view those details.
