Lapstone Farm is a 5.5 hectare site on the Botley Road, almost opposite the Lapstone Pub.
You walk through an open field to the community orchard, here 50 apple, pear and damson trees were planted several years ago, then continue on to the community woodland which has planted with oak, ash and crab apple, along with many other species. Other features of the site include wildflower meadows. There is no parking for the site at present, but it is a very pleasant 20 minute walk. There are several benches on site, where visitors may rest and enjoy the view. A boardwalk links this area to the Lapstone playing fields and a kissing gate leads you towards Firtree Lane linking in with other public footpaths..
Please note that the land is grazed by cattle from May – October, so dogs need to be kept under strict control during this time.
