Gardening is a great way to be involved with the great outdoors – it's a good way to take light exercise, to be involved with nature, to watch the seeds that you sow grow into mature plants, and, what's more, you get to eat lovely fresh fruit and vegetables as a reward!

If you are over 18 and a Daventry resident you can apply to Daventry Town Council to have an allotment on one of our four sites:-

Daneholme has 42 plots and is situated at the top of Welton Road

Drayton East has 52 plots and Drayton West has 48 plots. They are situated at the end of Orchard Street

Staverton Road has 27 plots and is situated on Western Avenue

Welton Road has 31 plots and is situated at the bottom of Welton Road

What are the size and cost of an Allotment?

An allotment is traditionally measured in rods (perches or poles), an old measurement dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. 10 poles is the normal accepted size of an allotment, the equivalent of 250 square metres or about the size of a doubles tennis court, though a fair amount of the allotments in Daventry are 5 pole plots (half the size.)

The current cost of an allotment is £4.50 Square Meters (per pole) meaning a 5 pole plot will cost you just £22.50 per year.
