Orchard & Cider Mill


Our Apple Orchard and Cider Mill are located on Aumit Lane, opposite St Alban's Sports Centre.

Ampleforth Abbey Orchard has been planted in a way that yields crops from July to October.  The orchard is stunning with blossom in April, May and June.  The best time to see the apples is July, August and September.  The Cider Mill is at its busiest from September to November when cider pressing, fermenting and bottling take place.  Tours of the orchard are available most of the year.
