Big Apple Weekend

13th & 14th October

For an afternoon, a day or a full weekend – the Big Apple is a special opportunity to enjoy the Autumn countryside in the Herefordshire parishes on the Marcle Ridge. The local orchards are famous for their cider fruit and their excellent eating apples. In our thirtieth year, the award-winning communities of these tiny parishes have put together a collection of small rural events based in and around Much Marcle, to enable you to share with the tradition of apple growing and cidermaking.

Autumn Waterworks Museum

28th October

Established in 1974, the museum is an independent working museum concerned primarily, but not exclusively, with the story of the supply of water for public consumption from earliest habitation to the close of the 20th century. Home to a permanent exhibition about Hereford in WW2 the museum is generally seen as a time capsule of social history for Herefordshire, the Marches and parts of Wales. With one of the widest range of working steam, oil, gas and hot air engines engines in the UK, many of which can be seen doing what they were intended for – pumping water, this will be a fantastic day out.  There are trails for the children and interactive devices across the Museum which visitors are encouraged to touch and use. This includes the Heritage Water Park (a children’s play ’n’ learn zone) in which there are nine life size devices for pumping, moving and filtering water.
