A peep into Apple Day in Brighton on Sunday

With apple identification, a huge selection of local apples and wonderful cider for sale!

Who would believe that there are so many Sussex apples, Alfriston, Hawkridge, Wadhurst and Golden Pippin, Knobby Russet, Dr Hogg and Coronation, the kind of apples we never see at our supermarkets!

The stalls were intriguing, naturally dyed coloured threads, hand carved wooden spoons, renovated garden tools with heavy seasoned wooden handles, troughs,  natural chocolate,  lots of unusual food outlets, dancing, Ditchling Morris, guess the weight competitions and even two Victorian roundabouts! As usual, also a  popular place for a family picnic. P1000993

It’s a pity that the car park fees have crept up to £5.00. Last time I went I’m sure it was £3.00 and even then it was a volP1000962untary contribution. We didn’t see any evidence of the mummer play, maybe it was part of the celebrations and I just missed it. But at least the British apple is still on the agenda
