Alnwick Town Council has a small number of plots available for rent at its allotment sites at Ratten Row and St James’s, to give green-fingered Alnwick residents the chance to grow their own fruit and veg.

The Ratten Row site is located between Alnwynside and Hulne Park. Pigeons and poultry are allowed to be kept on these allotments with appropriate permissions. There are five full-sized plots with water available.

The St James’s allotment site is located off Victoria Road and near to Willowburn. Shared water supplies are available, but livestock cannot be kept on this site. There are two half-size plots with water and two full-size plots with water available.

Rents for 2017 are £31 for a half plot to £47 for a full plot with water. Anyone interested should contact the town council by emailing alnwick townclerk@btconnect.com or calling 01665 602574.
