Lifford Lane Allotments have 19 Plots and can be found in Kings Norton, Birmingham.
The Allotments sit in a very mixed environmental surrounding. On one side, there is a Canal offering the peacefulness of Narrowboats passing by and local fishermen sitting quietly on the Tow Path - on the other side, the local Recycling Centre. There is passing traffic on one side, and greenery on the other.
Although it now has 19 plots, at one time there were more. Where the Recycling Centre is across the road, there were 37 plots. At the bottom end of the site, land was purchased by a local business and has been fenced off. Hence unusual numbering of plots now on site - from 38a to 58
Many local residents have plots on the site, and although part of Birmingham City Council, Lifford Lane works together with another local Allotment - Walkers Heath, situated half a mile away.
We now have a Committee and are looking for new members - come on existing plot-holders, join us and make this site thrive! Have a chat with Richard and he'll let you know of our regular meetings once the Pavilion is ready and raring to go.
If you are interested in having an Allotment at Lifford Lane, contact Richard Coltman who virtually lives there, and he will be more than happy to arrange to show you around. Sometimes we have a waiting list so you may have to be a little patient.
