West Mills Allotments & Island Cottage


Lovely allotments and small town garden in the centre of Newbury. You are welcome to visit the allotments on our 120 plot site with the opportunity to talk to some of the plot holders about their methods. A variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers to see, some in greenhouses and polytunnels. Island Cottage is a small town garden set between a backwater of the River Kennet and the Kennet and Avon Canal. You will find interesting combinations of colour and texture to look at rather than walk through, although you can do that too! A deck overlooks a sluiceway towards a lawn and border. Started from scratch in 2005, and mostly again after the floods of 2014.
