espalier apple and pear tree rows

I have one espalier apple row going on m-27 stock (quite dwarfing) I need to remove a couple of trees that are not espaliered and that will free up quite a bit of room. The question is what is the minimum distance between the rows for apple and/or pears on m-27 stock. I may go farther apart, but I can't plant and order trees for next year until I can figure this out.

My understanding s that it depends on the style you choose.
I'm basing mine on Belgian Fence.

suggested spacing for m-27 is 1.2 meters. a little less than three and a half feet.

Thankyou so much the only guess I could come by was 10 feet and I knew that was wrong because that is for stand alone trees. I definately have room for both another apple row and a pear row, with room to spare.
