The Visited Orchard

A unique kind of treasure hunt for adults and children alike.

Where stories will be told, places celebrated and a new tree planted.

Follow artist Francesca Millican-Slater's unique treasure hunt around the 9-acre site. Discover hidden nooks and crannies on the site of Anne Hathaway's Cottage by finding individual objects that tell you stories of who has been here before.

Pick up clues to unlock the stories of visitors from the past and present; Second World War sweethearts, migratory birds, writers of letters and famous names.  

Engage in actions and activities as you make your own journey; write a story, exchange an item, act out a miniature play. 

Finish your adventure by writing or drawing your story on an ornamental apple and hanging it on a special tree that will grow with visitor apples through out the summer.
