Hill Allotments (also known as "The Hill") is a small allotment site on the northern edge of Birmingham.
We have a history dating back to before the 1st World War. George Chamberlain was the Honorary Secretary of the Hill and Four Oaks Allotments and Small Holdings Association and in 1916 wrote in a local newspaper about the problems caused by the war. "The war has deprived the young association of eight or nine of its most active members; others are in a state of uncertainty as to their future and the natural consequence is that allotment work at Mere Green and Four Oaks is at a standstill."
At the time the allotment site occupied 11 to 12 acres of land at Mere Green. Between the wars the site was moved to Tower Road and in 1945 to its current situation between Gibbons Road and Dugdale Crescent.
There are currently 75 allotment holders. We offer 3 different plot sizes, MINI, SMALL & STANDARD. Newcomers are usually offered a MINI plot initially.
All plotholders are members of the Hill Plotholders Association and are eligible to join the Social Club.
We do not have any plots available at the moment.
If you wish to be added to the waiting list please contact Allan at [email protected]
Please be aware that you must live in Sutton Coldfield to be eligible for a plot at Hill.
Also, Is the allotment near where you live? If it is far away you may not feel like popping in to do a bit of work when you have the odd hour or two.
Please note that the main entrance is between the houses just after Duncalf Drive.
