Crabapple Community was founded in 1975 and moved here to Berrington Hall (a rambling, slightly eccentric, Georgian rectory built in 1805) two years later. We are situated 5 miles south-east of Shrewsbury and surrounded on all sides by farmland. The house is set in approx 20 acres of woodland, meadows and growing areas. We have a 2 acre walled fruit and vegetable garden, a community-supported market garden, several polytunnels, an orchard, a willow plantation, herb and flower gardens plus 2 large camping fields. There’s also numerous nooks and crannies!
The human impact on nature and on each other is accelerating and needs systemic change to reverse.
We’re not advocating poverty, or a hair-shirt existence. We advocate changes that will mean better lives for almost everyone.
