After visiting Thornbury harbour we headed straight south out of town. I'm always impressed by the big old 19th century homes on the main residential street, and the orchards south of town are among the best in the region.
Immediately south of town are the apple orchards, both the traditional widely spaced and heavily pruned trees, and the new high density orchards. The trees in the upper photo until recently looked like those in the second photo. The older trees were all ripped out and these new ones planted.
The same pattern repeats itself around the corner, still all on the same farm. I won't be surprised to see the rest of the older trees get replaced in future years.
We headed west from Clarksburg across the Beaver River out into the open countryside to wend our way home. Tomorrow some country shots.
