See the Fifties allotment in our park, which features a range of vegetables and popular flowers that would have been available in the 1950s.

We’ve planted a selection of organically grown heritage seeds and over the summer we hope to grow and harvest potatoes, broad beans, onions, cauliflower and much more. Come and visit our allotment which, of course, includes its very own shed – a must for any 50s gardener.
