This Sunday there’s Heritage Open Day at Bagthorpe Gardens, Hucknall Road, Sherwood, Nottingham NG5 1DA (Opposite Teesdale Road). These are the allotments at the back of my house, the world’s oldest – dating from the 1840s. Some are cottage gardens, others more traditionally allotmenty. There’ll be displays of photos and artefacts. Refreshments, plants and produce for sale. (My partner’s baking cakes today). Wear stout shoes!
Open: 12noon – 4pm. Tours at 12.30pm and 2.30pm. Oh, and I’ll be reading from my new aylum seekers & allotments novel, Secret Gardens, at 2pm. Selling and signing afterwards too. So why not come along? It’s all free (except for the refreshments and books, of course).
Good reason to recycle an allotment photo above. This week’s song of the week needs no further introduction than its title.
