The majority of allotment sites in Barnstaple are owned and managed by Barnstaple Town Council. Sites include Bryant's Field, Fairview, Higher Raleigh, Sunnybank and Mill Road (the ownership of which has recently been transferred from North Devon Council). Together, these sites provide a total of 241 plots of varying sizes.
There are also a small number of allotment gardens located at the rear of Penrose Almshouses in Litchdon Street, which are administered by the resident caretaker on behalf of the trustees of the Barnstaple Municipal Charities.
The current number of plots at each site in Barnstaple is shown in the table below:
|Allotment Site||No. Plots|
The plots on each of the council's allotment sites are inspected on a monthly basis throughout the season, and to a published schedule. The council are also intending to introduce unannounced or 'spot' inspections at some point this year.
Information relating to each of the allotment sites, the inspection regime and current waiting list is provided on the Barnstaple Town Council website which you can access by clicking here (opens in a new window).
