These recordings were done on 15th October 2011 in a back garden in Lodmoor, Weymouth, while I was picking apples. Really it was not scrumping as I had the owners permission to be there, though they were not there at the time. Technically to qualify as true scrumping it has to involve climbing an orchard wall and taking apples without the owners consent.
Scrumping is a term that seems to have originated from southern England and generally means to steal apples from someone else’s tree or orchard. Scrumping does not refer to large-scale theft of apples for commercial purposes. It usually conjures up images of a gang of teenage boys climbing over an orchard wall and taking a few apples for lunch on a warm late summer afternoon.
