Buckland Hill

23 plots

A smallish site bordered on two sides by roads – Buckland Road and Buckland Hill – with views over the town and to the North Downs which are great.

The road boundaries have privet and mixed hedging which masks the traffic noise to a degree [only really noticed at peak times and with the odd boy racer!].  But allows us to hear the lively chatter of those passing by, particularly the children on their way to school which can be amusing!

The site is on a slope but there are no drainage problems for the top plots.  Soil is good and everything seems to grow well.  We do have a bit of a pigeon problem [the wood pigeons, which are so beautiful - one admires their daring] but netting works well plus the odd ingenious bird scarer.

All are keen allotmenteers, new and experienced, who share tips, produce and a love of growing.

The site has mains water supply, and there are a number of storage tanks.  There are two entrances, one on each road.  Parking on Buckland Road is limited to two hours on weekdays, but moving your car to a nearby spot allows another two.
