Histon village allotments
|Looking across the Gatehouse Road site in May 1999.|
Gatehouse Road Allotments are managed by Histon parish council, situated on the outskirts of Histon, on the Girton - Oakington road. There are 22 plots, 45% occupied (unoccupied plots are ploughed at least once a year). No water supply but very reasonable rent (£6 per plot a year) compensates for this.

Poorsland Allotments are well used (there is a waiting list), situated on the old Cottenham Road, the site is administed by the Trustees of a Charity, being representatives from the Parish Council and St Andrew's Church, Histon.

There are also a number of allotments in Impington (note that many don't differentiate between Histon and Impington, but we do!)
To the best of our knowledge there is no allotment society in Histon, though there are two Gardening Clubs in the Histon / Impington area.
