NTU is the custodian of the original Bramley apple tree, located in the garden of cottages once used as a butchers shop by Matthew Bramley. Although the tree is extremely old and suffering from honey fungus, it still produces fruit.
A member of NTU staff will be able to explain why the tree is so special and discuss ongoing research into quality components of the apples it produces.
This year, the original Bramley apple tree was been chosen as part of a nationwide network of 70 ancient trees dedicated to The Queen in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee.
For more information, please visit the Heritage Open Days website.
There are a number of car parks near to where the tree is located. You can either look these up in advance or follow signs in Southwell for parking on the day.
You can access Southwell by car, bus, train and bicycle. The garden where the tree is located is accessed by walking down the side of 75 and 77 Church St in Southwell.
