1. Overview

Allotments can be very rewarding, providing your own vegetables, fruit, and flowers.

It can provide delicious, homegrown vegetables, fruit and flowers and at a fraction of shop prices. There is also a social side, enabling you to meet new people with similar interests.

In addition you can enjoy healthy outdoor activity with the benefits of exercise and a place to unwind.

Stockport has over 30 sites, with sizes ranging from just 2 plots to over 90. Most plots are 300 sq yards. However, many people choose to work half a plot if this is more suited to their time and needs.

The majority of our sites are run by allotment organisations. The Stockport allotment information (PDF 104Kb) document shows more details.
