Washbrook Allotments

Our allotment gardens have been described as a hidden oasis off the main Welford Road. There are over 100 whole, half and quarter plots growing a wide variety of fruit and vegetables. We have a fledgling wildflower meadow, other wildlife friendly areas and a composting toilet! Keep a look out for the remains of Anderson Shelters, and other 'Heath Robinson' constructions.

Sunday 2 September (11am - 3pm). Admission £3.00, children free. Home-made teas.
