Important Update - New Bridge and Gate

Unfortunately, we have been notified that our new bridge and gate installation has been delayed.  This is of course hugely frustrating, however we do have new dates.

Works are to begin on 13th January 2020 and are expected to end Friday 31st January. 

For the duration of the works:

There will be NO ACCESS to site on WEEKDAYS

There will be FOOT ACCESS ONLY for daylight hours at WEEKENDS

Please observe these restrictions. Do not cause unnecessary delays by trying to access site at non-permitted times. These arrangements are for your safety.

Our Growing Academy is Back for 2020!

Yes, our Growing Academy is back for a new year with 16 classes covering everything from weeding, polytunnels, peas, parsnips and flowers.

Classes will start on January 11th 2020 at 10am. A full timetable is available here and more information about The Growing Academy can be found here.

Demand for places was very high last year and we expect this coming year to be no different. Please reserve your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

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.
