We have three allotment sites within the parish, Brownshill, France Lynch and Middle Hill.

Both the Brownshill and Middle Hill sites are currently full but please get in touch if you would like to be added to the waiting list. We have one plot available at the France Lynch site so if you would be interested in taking on an allotment at this site or if you have any questions then please contact Kate@chalford-glos.gov.uk or phone during opening hours on (01453) 887204.

Chalford Allotments are on charity land, the charity’s title being “Chalford Allotments for the Labouring Poor” (Charity No. 206016) and therefore are for residents of the parish of Chalford.
