The History of St Mary's Allotments

Several of our members have been working to find out more about the history of the St Mary’s allotments.

They have now woven together all of the snippets, pictures and records about the site into a coherent and accurate story called 'Twenty Acres and a River'

You can purchase a copy of the book from Waterstones or The Temperance for £8:50

Meanwhile, if you have any historical information – newspaper cuttings, anecdotes, old photos, printed references to the allotments – please let us know so we can learn even more about our amazing site.
