The orchard has been created by local people on an old bowling green in Broomfield Park, London N13. Planted in Dec 2009: it now has 100 fruit trees in four espaliers and two diagonal avenues of trees. The orchard is a partnership with the London Borough of Enfield and Enfield Mencap, with the support of the Friends of Broomfield Park and local residents associations.
