Aldershot Road Allotments
Apply for a plot at these allotments and grow your own fruit and veg. Meet other growers who are always willing to give help and advice to those new to cultivating an allotment plot.
A full allotment only costs £1 per week. Working an allotment within a sociable and helpful community of plotholders can be rewarding and also reduce your shopping bills considerably, but be aware that it is not as easy as TV gardening programmes would have you believe! Machinery is available for tenants’ use.
Aldershot Road Allotments has a self help group, WASHA, which runs an educational programme, with start-up funding from The Big Lottery, to help people be successful on their plots.
Park Barn is under represented among the tenant base with only nine Park Barn residents. There is a waiting list for allotment holders, but don’t let that put you off applying now!
All year round!
This is the site with an entry gate off Woodside Road and pedestrian gate off Broadacres.
