Histon village allotments
|Sweetcorn growing at Gatehouse Road.
Wayne Millard uses a bed system, adding manure and organic matter to build up fertility. This year is his first full season.
The plot is enclosed by chicken wire to keep out the rabbits.
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.
