WB00860_.GIF (262 bytes) 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.

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.
