Orchard Manor is a well designed and nicely laid out new estate. A number of different house styles and different materials (bricks/tiles) across the estate, sometimes even in the same named marque. This presents an attractive look whilst driving around the estate. Roads and footpaths are wide and well designed – part brick paved, part tarmac roads.
There are ongoing snagging issues – possibly more than one would expect – but Charles Church are working to rectify them; not always quickly enough!
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Good bus service to largest local town. Mainline railway station just outside village – fifteen minute walk. Two very good pubs and village shop. Excellent Primary School and play area. Various village societies.
Efficient bin collection. Little traffic noise away from the High Street which can be quite busy. Very few anti-social problems.
