No Man’s Community Orchard in Chartham is a haven for flora and fauna, insects and of course trees. The 10 acre site, on the boundary between Chartham and Harbledown, is one of the few surviving traditional orchards in the area and protected under the Countryside Stewardship Scheme.
There are a staggering 33 different species of lichens and mosses to be found on the fruit trees, which in 2002 it was the first old orchard in Britain to be given the protections as a Local Nature Reserve. Visitors can take a rest on the serpent seat sculpture, created from oak and apple wood in 1996, with a new oak sculpture installed in 2008.
