Kingsbridge Hill

With beautiful views over the town and countryside, this site is elevated on a hillside and enjoys water taps spread across the site as well as parking. The allotments at Kingsbridge Hill are on the left of the main Kingsbridge Road as you drive just out of Totnes, close to the old Toll House.

In 2009 a local couple offered to sell us part of a field on the outskirts of the town. We had no money, but we had credibility as an energetic and efficient community association by this time. So we were successful with both Lottery bids and a bid to the Wakefield Trust. The Town Council helped us put the bids together. District and County Councillors helped us with legal and infrastructure costs. In spring 2010 another 29 tenants moved on to the new Kingsbridge Hill site and began to create their own allotment community as the Castle Meadow group has done.
