Visitors to the Fruit Route Autumn event in 2014 were asked by Paul Conneally (Fruit Routes poet) to select an apple and peel it trying to do so in ‘one peel’ trying to get as long an apple peeling as possible.

The length was measured in centimetres and this calculated with the person’s age was used to find a quote in a book of Wordsworth’s poetry that was then changed by replacing nouns with apple or Apples.

The new poems were hung with the peel that helped create them on the Landscaping and Gardening Society (LAGS) Shed as a poetry installation.

The apples were then pressed on site by Transition Loughborough to make apple juice and cider.
