the Jewel in wellesbourne’s crown
Wellesbourne Allotments is a vibrant community with an incredible history. Our 7 acre site on the edge of the village has 97 Plots worked by 150 Allotmenteers of all ages. Our site has been feeding the village since at least 1838, perhaps even before The Enclosures Act of 1734. We have some of the best soils in England for growing fruit and vegetables – soil which has been worked and improved by generations of Wellesbourne residents over hundreds of years, making us some of the oldest allotments in the UK.
