A short history of the Walton and District Allotment Association.
Formed in 1918 by Veterans from the Great War, the members with help from the Town Council and Local Farmers purchased the land on which our present sites are located.
The Association is unique in that the members are shareholders, and actually own the land they cultivate.
We have two sites.
a] Walton Road 60 x 10 rod plots.
b] Grove Avenue 60 x 10 rod plots
All sites have mains water, mowers, tillers and strimmers are available for hire. The soil is fertile medium clay.
We have a waiting list at the present time, ( closed at the moment)
You may erect a shed, have a lawn, grow fruit, vegetables and flowers, even go organic, create a wildlife garden, in other words make your garden a good place to visit and relax
