The well-known Bramley cooking apple was first seeded in Southwell by Mary Ann Brailsford in 1809.  A local nurseryman Henry Merryweather, 17 years old, saw its potential and cultivated the Bramley (apple) from cuttings.  The apple is now used across the cookery world, and is renowned for its sweet taste.

The Bramley Fund is championed by the great grandson of Henry Merryweather, Roger.
