Allotments

Introduction

Allotments in Sunningdale date back to 1860, possibly earlier. The current site was first let by the Rev. Raffles Flint, the vicar of Holy Trinity, around the late 1870s. The Parish Council, which was formed on 31st December 1894, officially took over responsibility for running the allotments at Michaelmas in 1895, and it has looked after them ever since.

A complete history of Sunningdale Allotments can be found here. It provides a useful read for anybody who is keen on local history or allotments.

Here is a slideshow with pictures that were taken at the allotments in September 2016. It focuses on squashes, pumpkins and decorative plants.
