Ashmead's Sward

A stretch of grass between the Dunwash River and Garden Street in the village of Durrow.

Ashmead's Sward was designated common land in some treaty of old, and is named for the Ashmead apple trees that grow along one edge. The trees are thought to have been planted by a traveller passing through many years ago. Though ancient, the trees still produce abundant and delicious fruit. Most village folk say the Sward is the best place to sit and collect one's thoughts, due to the quiet, peaceful feeling that hangs in the air there.
