Allotments Managed by Hertford Town Council            

The Town Council has 6 allotment sites in Hertford which are located at Bengeo, Cromwell Road, the Folly, Hertingfordbury, Sele Road and North Road.

Water is provided on all sites and there is a rolling programme of site visits by Council staff throughout the year.

Allotment gardening helps to promote a healthy lifestyle, providing an affordable source of fruit and vegetables, plenty of fresh air, healthy exercise and a good way to de-stress from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It can be a social activity as well, bringing together people from all age groups and various social backgrounds around a common interest.

Our Hertingfordbury, Cromwell Road and Sele Road allotment sites currently have available plots at a cost of £5.10 per pole per year. Plots are usually 10, 5 or 2.5 poles in size and a 5 poles plot is considered large enough to provide fresh fruit and vegetables to feed a growing family.

If you are interested in a healthy and productive hobby, please contact the Allotments Officer by emailing suzie@hertford.gov.uk
