As well as fruit trees, the St Mary's Church Field Orchard includes a number of community allotments, a meadow area that contains a wide variety of wild flowers, beehives, and a wildlife area with a pond. It is managed in partnership between Bridport Town Council and the Bridport Community Orchard Group (BCOG).

Bridport Community Orchard has achieved Plastic Free status as part of the Town Mayor’s campaign to make Bridport a Plastic Free Community. To achieve this, we have removed all single use plastics from our operation. This is a small but significant step towards reducing the volume of harmful plastic finding its way into ecosystems world wide.
