    I think that's a good price. Mine were from a fruit farm & cost a quid for a lb. I bought 4lbs and have used 3lbs to make damson gin. Only made one bottle last year & everyone liked it so much that we thought we'd do extra & save pretty bottles to give it as Christmas gifts this year. With the remaning 1lb, I added a lb of our windfall apples & made damson & apple jelly which is really nice, can use like jam on sweet things, or with meats like lamb. You don't always see damsons & some years they are even more scarce because the crop isn't as good, so I like to buy some every year.

    Hi Savannah02K, I'm in Wolverhampton and there are lots of tree's along the canal by me. I've found several trees around the Wombourne stretch of the Staffs and Worcs canal and a few around the Compton area of the same canal. I would guess there are more in parts I've not checked as they seem quite plentiful in this area, but you do need to look hard and sometimes fight your way through nettles to reach them

    Good Luck!
