84 well established allotments cultivated in a variety of styles in a peaceful environment. Wide selection of fruit, vegetable and flowers including exhibition standard sweet peas. Some plots divided into mini-allotments which will have been judged the day before. Many plot holders will be present. Fresh vegetables and plants for sale.

Marion Jay / 84 Valley Road
This is the final year we’ll be opening our garden for the NGS. A dramatic garden rising steeply from the back of the house, using an ‘amphitheatre’ of stone wall terracing to accommodate the slope. Planting is largely in the modern perennial style, mixing drifts of drought-tolerant herbaceous plants with a variety of grasses. Three ponds and a naturalistic front garden. Open for two consecutive Friday evenings, with wine and nibbles. Lots of plants for sale, the majority of which have been propagated from the garden.
