Putley Parish Hall

Putley Parish Hall(Postcode: HR8 2QN, What3Words: ///putty.deny.increases)

First head for Putley Parish Hall which is the Information Hub, where you can park, buy entrance tickets (£5 for adults, children under 16 free, valid for all three venues for the day), pick up leaflets and start walks, both guided and ‘freestyle’.

The Hall will also be the centre for refreshments, and the famous Blossomtime lunches and teas.

Car parking

We have the use of a large field for car parking behind the hall.  If you come by car please park here as car parking is not available at Dragon Orchard or Court Farm Barn, except for Blue Badge holders where there will be a few spaces.


These can be purchased only at the hall from 10.45am on both days.  The tickets cost £5 for adults, accompanied children under 16 are free.  The ticket gives you access to all three venues for the day and includes cider and perry tasting at Dragon Orchard and talks and other activities at Court Farm Barn and the guided walks.  Cash is preferred as internet reception for our card machine can be erratic.

Travel to the other venues

All three venues are within 10 to 15 minutes walk of each other and we will also be running a limited tractor and passenger trailer service between the venues from 11am to 5pm each day.  We wish to avoid clogging up the local roads with cars which is why we ask you to park at Putley Parish Hall.

Lunches and Teas

These will be served in Putley Parish Hall from 11am to 5pm on both days.  Lunches on Sunday will be provided by Aylton Church from 11.00am – 2.00pm; Munsley WI will provide Teas from 2.00pm.  On Monday lunches will be provided by Ledbury Young Farmers Club and Teas from 2.00pm by Putley WI.
