Histon village allotments
Planting time for the girl's pumpkins.
The seeds were free (for children only) from 'Organic Gardening' magazine, intended to encourage an early interest in gardening.
Gatehouse Road Allotments are managed by Histon parish council, situated on the outskirts of Histon, on the Girton - Oakington road. There 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.
