This is a large thriving allotment site, with a very open aspect, surrounded on all sides by suburban houses (1890s – 1930s) with gardens backing on to the site.
They have over 100 individual plots, a plum orchard and a wildlife area which includes a large and attractive pond. The allotments share the space with lots of wildlife, chickens and bee hives (but no noisy cockerels!)
Their gardeners comprise an exciting mix of ages and backgrounds reflecting the local community – plenty of colourful characters! The allotments were awarded third place in the 2009 London in Bloom competition.
There is mains water, toilets and sewage but no electricity on site.
Access: Cars and light trucks up to 7.5 tonnes
Restrictions: No electricity on site
