On the evening of July 29, a group of Rotarians and their friends and families went on a guided tour around St Ann's Allotments in Nottingham. St Ann's Allotments are the oldest and largest area of Victorian detached town gardens in the world and is listed Grade 2* by English Heritage.
It covers 75 acres and includes the three allotment areas of Hungerhill, Stonepit Coppice and Gorsey Close. It provides hundreds of local gardeners with fresh air, back-bending recreation and self-grown fruit, vegetables and flowers.
 
We were taken around the oldest part of the allotments the Hungerford Hill section.
Our guides Lucy and Lydia gave us a wonderful insight to the Allotments, their history and what they are focusing on the future now that the Lottery Funding has run out.
Or rather slow group was taken up and down and roundabout. So we were able to gain an insight into the atmosphere up there gardens which provided- "pleasure, peace and privacy"
We ended the tour at Oliver's Garden where we could wander around at our leisure, while enjoying a cup of tea and biscuits.
