Suggestions for the choice of apple trees

We've used the Internet to seek suggestions for the choice of apples to plant.This is the list of the suggestions we've received so far:

  • Beeley Pippin (as the land was once part of the Chatsworth Estate - probably very appropriate).
  • Lord Lambourne 
  • Lord Derby 
  • James Grieve 
  • Newton Wonder 
  • Annie Elizabeth 
  • Ribston Pippin 
  • Court Pendu Plat 
  • Discovery 
  • Elison's Orange 
  • Grandpa Buxton ( a must for Derbyshire) ...............reliable big fruit 
  • Keswick Codlin 
  • Brownlees russet 
  • Scrumptious 
  • Ribston Pippin 
  • Newton Wonder
We'll have to have a think about what we plant where and when. Other suggestions would be welcomed. We've also discovered a local community orchard project not too far away. We must visit it and get some ideas.
