Welcome to Ashbourne Road Allotments

The Allotments were established in June 1917 and cover over 9 acres, with 130 allotment plots. We can be found  on Mackworth Road in Derby

The allotments primary function is to serve the residents of the surrounding area but this should not deter you from applying for an allotment if you live in other areas of Derby.

New members are always welcomed. Vacant plots come up fairly frequently and although there is usually a waiting list of people wanting an allotment on our site this should not deter you from adding your name to the list.

If you would like to put your name down for a plot or find out more about the allotments please contact our Secretary by secretary [at] araa.org.uk (Subject: Website%20Enquiry) (email) or by phone on 01332 485018‬.

The site is owned by Derby City Council but it's leased by the Allotment Association and managed by an elected Committee. The Committee work hard to ensure all members are able to enjoy recreational gardening to the maximum, in a safe and supportive environment.
