Ready to go nuts!

The region's first nut orchard is to be created thanks to funding from an environmental trust.

The nuttery will be planted within the Washington Village Conservation Area.

The Friends of Washington Old Hall received funding from Prudhoe-based demolition contractors Thompson's, which founded its own environmental trust five years ago.

The money will provide trees and fencing for the nuttery which covers half an acre of formerly unused land.

Thirty-three trees, including hazels, almonds and walnuts, have been underplanted with meadow flowers to create a wildlife habitat.
