Kettlestone Parish Council is the managing Trustee of the Surveyor’s Allotment. It is has recently purchased a replacement gate for the entrance to the plot of land. This is a step towards the long-term development of the site as a community environmental plot. A rough path has also been cut to make it possible to walk round the site.
Click Kettlestone Surveyor's Allotment to see more photos and the location.
When you visit the allotment, it would be great if you could let us know what plants, birds, animals and insects you see, so that we can begin to build up a record of the wildlife there. Please send an email (stating what you have seen and when - with a photo if you can) to e-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
