The Garden

Fulham Palace Meadows Allotment Association (FPMAA) runs this site by the Thames in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. A gift from the Bishop of London in 1916, the site is exceptional in that it covers an Anglo-Saxon site of historical importance. It is set within a designated Scheduled Ancient Monument area and is under the jurisdiction of English Heritage. In the later Middle Ages, Fulham Palace is reputed to have been the largest moated residence in Europe. Run by dedicated volunteers, FPMAA plays a vital part in local life. With more than 400 plots, an amazing cross-section of local residents from all walks of life gain a unique experience within this inner-city haven.
