The Garden

Prospect Walk Allotments were laid out in the late 1970s. The area had been damaged by WW2 bombing and, in the post-war period, the site was used for emergency housing. The 'prefabs' were not cleared until around 1974, when local people took the initiative and created the allotment site we see today. The Allotment Association comprises 24 members who cultivate 22 plots and a border area; the site is bordered by mature trees on two sides and there is a newly created wildlife plot, including a pond. Visitors can expect a warm welcome from plot-holders.
