The Allotment Site in your area of Bideford
This site is situated at the end of West Croft Junior School’s playing field, and accessed via Marland Terrace. The site can be a little windy, but the soil is reasonably good, if a little heavy in places. There are 25 full plots and 9 half plots on this site. There is currently no water on site, but the Marland Allotment Association is currently working hard to instigate some improvements on site, which will include the provision of water for each plot. There is a very good community spirit at the Marland Site and the majority of the plots are well worked. On the 1 September 2009 the Marland site became self-managed and is essentially run by the allotment holders for the allotment holders.
This site is situated behind the Pollyfield Centre at East the Water. There are fabulous views across the river from this site and access is very easy. A limited number of vehicles can be driven right up to the gateway and members of the Pollyfield Allotment Association are currently in the process of widening the central pathway. There is a good community spirit at this site, and there is always someone on hand to welcome new people. The majority of plots here are well worked and the soil is good. There are 33 full plots on this site.
