The Orchard

The dream of D-Day veteran Dennis Davison, the Peace Orchard in Coundon Hall Park, Coventry, is a legacy to the apple orchards of Normandy where he and many others fought for peace in 1944 as part of the D-Day Campaign.

“On walks around the Coundon wedge with friends, we stop for coffee and cake in the Peace Orchard. On a sunny day all of the benches are occupied with families and friends taking time away from the stresses and strains of lockdown… The Peace Orchard now holds a special place in our hearts and does for many other local people too.”


Join Eden Project Communities at The Peace Orchard, for a Coventry Community Celebration, on Sunday 23 July 2023, 11am – 3:30pm.

Coventry Community Celebration Sunday 23rd July 11-3.30
