Plot Holders » Allotment Facilities & Maps

Colchester Avenue Allotments have a range of facilities available to plot holders. Take a look at the map below to see where the facilities are located.

The site has a shop, run by Val and is open on Sundays 12 – 2.

There’s a flushing toilet available for plot holders (accessible using your gate key)

Tool hire (including strimmers & a rotavator) is kindly managed by Craig, who also sells weed suppressant fabric at good rates (£10 will get you a petrol strimmer with a full tank of gas, a full reel of cutting line, head protector and a quick lesson on how to use it). Tool hire works on a donation policy, with plot holders paying a small fee and a deposit when hiring a tool which is returned when the tool is return in the same condition it was in when hired out. Contact Craig on 07944 417528.
