The site was originally part of Hanwell Park Estate, a large country house situated on the site of what is now Drayton Manor High School. By 1913, Hanwell Park House had been demolished, and the streets that exist today were being built to the north and south of what would become the allotment site. You can read more about the history of the allotments here.
Framfield has 85 ten-pole plots, many of which are divided into two half plots of five poles each. We have more 100 plot holders of all ages and backgrounds gardening on our beautiful 3 hectare (7-acre) site. Some have been battling our solid London clay for just a few months, others have been with us for many fruitful years. Plot holders grow fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs and keep bees, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits and guinea pigs.
The site has mains water throughout, modern flushing toilets, a kitchen and a large pond and wildlife area with picnic tables. Manure and wood chip are available on site. All of these facilities have been installed or upgraded by the Association since it was founded in 2007, with the aid of generous support from our sponsors.
