Wotton-under-Edge Town Council runs two allotment sites. One at New Road having 42 plots, and the other at Knapp Road having 35 plots. Both sites are situated on south to south west facing slopes benefiting from well-drained soil. The Town Council acquired part of the Knapp Road site in 1968. The land at New Road formed part of the Secondary Modern School as a smallholding, rearing some livestock and growing crops. In 1973 Katharine Lady Berkeley’s School became a comprehensive, and moved site. The land was acquired by the Town Council to be used for allotments and a portion of land, at New Road, is leased from The Stephens Trust.
There is usually a waiting list for both sites. Some plots are available as a half plot which means should a full allotment be a little too much there are options. For site plans please click here. The Town Council has an Allotments Committee. The Committee meets four times a year. It organises the annual Best Kept Allotment Competition and this incorporates an award for the Best Newcomer.
All new tenants receive an Allotment Agreement along with a quick reference of Dos and Don’ts and some useful National Allotment Society leaflets.Allotment Agreements Allotment Do’s and Dont’s
