This year we have been doing lots of research into the site and have now discovered that we are the oldest allotment gardens in London. We love our allotments and are keen to share them with fellow gardeners. So, please do come and join us, and see what is growing. Whether you want to chat with plotholders who are passionate about gardening or just come and soak in the atmosphere of this beautiful place – you will be very welcome.
Dogs are welcome too (if on a lead).
Entrance is via the big double gates on Northfield Avenue (by the two bus stops).
