About the plots

The majority of the plots measure approximately 125 square metres, although there are a few smaller plots provided on some of the sites.

All the sites are fitted with communal water taps and generally they are within easy reach of most plots. We do not provide sheds, but sometimes new tenants may be able to negotiate to take over a shed owned by the outgoing tenant.

Renting an allotment does not require any experience or knowledge. They are open to everyone. There are experienced gardeners on most sites who will be happy to support new plot holders. There is also a large range of books available on the subject.
