Allotments available from town council

Are you interested in growing your own fruit and vegetables, but need more garden space?

If so, have you ever considered an allotment?

Alnwick Town Council has a small number of allotment plots available for rent at their site at Ratten Row and any Alnwick resident interested in renting a plot is asked to contact the council on 01665 602574 or by email to

Nearly all the plots have their own water supply and are ready for immediate occupation.

The town council manages more than 130 allotment plots spread across four sites around the town – Ratten Row, St James’s (off Victoria Road), St George’s (between Victoria Road and St George’s Crescent) and Cawledge View – and there is a small waiting list for some of the sites.

At Ratten Row, the rent is currently £45 for a full plot and £35 for a half plot (£10 less without water).
