There are three allotment sites in Chalford Parish. These are located on Middle Hill and in France Lynch and Brownshill.
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.
We were recently sent a link to this ‘blog’ that contains useful information about starting out with an allotment we which hope may be of interest.
