Jo Stewart, English Heritage Manager of Battle Abbey, asked Beautiful Battle to help plant fruit trees in their walled garden.  English Heritage are recreating the garden of the Duchess of Cleveland who owned the Abbey in Victorian times.  On 14th February, BB members turned out in force to help plant 36 fruit trees.
