Riding Mill Allotments occupy a small site In Broomhaugh. There are just 18 plots of all sizes with rentals starting at around £20 per year inclusive of water and a discounted seed scheme. The soil is an easily worked light sandy loam which can produce good crops of a variety of fruit and vegetables from raspberries to radishes or leeks to lettuces!
The Association is run by Members who have recently negotiated a new long lease from the Parish Council. As before, plot holders are limited to Village residents which means that plots may become vacant as people move away. So if interested, find out more and put your name down on the Waiting List by contacting the current Secretary via firstname.lastname@example.org.
