Greggs Pit Perry

Gregg's Pit Cider & Perry is an award winning, artisan producer of craft cider and perry. James Marsden bought Gregg's Pit in 1992 and the title deeds showed that the cottage and traditional orchard had been present since 1785.

He began to restore the orchard which had suffered years of neglect, identifying the many varieties of cider apple and perry pear trees and planting new ones.

James made his first perry at Gregg's Pit in 1994, re-establishing a tradition that last took place in the 1920's. Helen Woodman joined him in 1998.

The Gregg's Pit name originates from a marl pit in one of the orchards, from which it is said the lime mortar was made to point the stonework of the 13th century church of St Bartholomew, Much Marcle.
