Southwell Bramley Apple Heritage Walks
Overview

'The Bramley Apple story starts with Mary Ann Brailsford, a young Southwellian who took some pips from the apples her mother was preparing and planted them in a flower pot. As one of the pips was doing so well, it was later transferred to the young girl's garden where it began to thrive. It is this tree that first began to bear a unique apple, one that has become a favourite of the nation and one of the most respected apples in the world.'
