Pics of the Dwarf Orchard

Anonymous asked if there are any pictures of the Dwarf Orchard on the web, and I confess I don’t seem to be able to find any, but I’ve been sent a picture of what is currently there, and a map of what is planned, scanned from a brief by Greenwich Park Management…

First of all, the splendid fellow from the portal above the entrance to the Dwarf Orchard. I can never remember whether he’s Old Father Thames, Neptune, The Green Man or, as I believe someone once somewhat randomly suggested, Charlton Heston, but he is rather fun. To my immense shame, I can’t recall who sent me this picture – I think it was Benedict – but huge apologies if it was someone else.
But onto the one and only picture that I know of on the web, of the Dwarf Orchard. Again I don’t know who took this; I’m told it’s ok to use it. Hope so…

So – a bunch of odd bits of masonry (maybe we can put them together again, a bit like the mice in Bagpuss and then hear a story by Professor Yaffle about what it is. Altogether now, “Heave! Heave…”) some wildflowers and a lot of weeds…
And finally, some plans. You’ll have to click on this to see the suggestions, but apart from the typos (and it happens to the best of us, ahem,) it all looks pretty sound.

More pics of the Dwarf Orchard will be gratefully received.
