LDGA Mini Plots

If for whatever reason you don’t want a standard full or half plot, LDGA have number of Mini Plots for rent at the Norton Allotment Site off Flint Road, Letchworth. Each one is approximately 25m² (16ftx16ft) and costs £20 a year.

Alternatively, leave it ready for collection at one of the following allotment sites:

  • Norton – 1pm any Thu or Sun
