Boroughbridge Allotment Society
We are a recently formed allotment society in the North Yorkshire market town of Boroughbridge.
Formed in December 2009 the society agreed the terms of a lease with Boroughbridge Town Council to set up an allotment site at Aldborough Gate to meet the local community needs. The allotments have since expanded owing to high demand and now boast 110 individual allotment plots.
