The History of the Allotments

The Tidbury Green Parish Council allotment site was inherited from Hockley Heath Parish Council. It is situated in Wood Lane, Earlswood opposite the Craft Centre and consists of approximately four acres of land.

The site was first allocated for use as allotments 34 years ago when an Association of volunteers was formed to administer and maintain the facility. Originally, the site was divided into 20 plots each measuring approximately 90 by 30 feet but due to recent demand for allotments from local residents the Association decided to limit allocation to half plots only.
