Middleton Allotment Project Please be aware that this project is still in draft stage and will not be going ahead until a decision on the change of use from the Secretary of State is recieved.
The Middleton Allotment site is owned and managed by the Parish Council and has been used to provide plots to local residents for many years. Unfortunately, due to various ongoing problems with soil quality and flooding on the land, it was proved not suitable for accommodating allotment plots, and therefore, another purpose was needed for this site. The Parish Council are now planning an exciting project to convert this neglected piece of land into a a wildlife-rich community garden that can be enjoyed by local residents.
Community Wildlife Garden
Wildlife Friendly Pond
Seasonal wild flower meadow
Short grass exploration paths
Recycled plastic benches
Native tree avenue and arboretum
Bee hives in the neighbouring orchard
Dense pockets of plants and shrubs
Peace Commemoration display across the Parish
The Parish Council also intend to plant 18 trees across the Parish as an act of remembrance.
Why 18? The number 18 signifies the number of conflicts the UK has been involved in from WW1 up until present time. These trees will form part of the tree avenue at the Middleton Allotment, and the others will be planted across the parish.
