Chalkhill orchard is on public open space in front of Chalkhill estate in Wembley Park. It dates from the 1960’s and includes veteran apples, pears, plums and a walnut tree. Orchard History Chalkhill estate was developed as a “Metroland” estate in the 1920’s (Metropolitan Railway’s property company developed housing estates on land that it had bought beside its railway lines, promoting the benefits of living in the countryside of “Metroland”) and enlarged between 1966 and 1970. The orchard was probably planted as part of the landscaping of the estate. Biodiversity Highlights & Habitat The orchard trees have cavities, dead wood and bracket fungus which are home to many species of invertebrates. The nearby railway line acts as a wildlife corridor A family of blue tits have nested in a hole in one of the apple trees Bats have been recorded in the area, including Serotine and Lesser Noctule Community Around the Orchard Residents of Chalkhill estate and other local residents Brent Parks Forum/Friends of St David's Close Orchard Northwest London Litter-picker and Orchardist Chalkhill primary school Brent Good Gym Thames 21
