Love Lane Allotments

The Coddenham Allotments are located along Love Lane, on the footpath leading to Broome Hill and are connected to the surrounding landscape via hedgerows, woodland and grassland.

One third of the land in towns and cities is gardens. Together, our gardens are a vast living landscape. With an estimated 16 million gardens in the UK, the way they are cared for can make a big difference to the natural world.

Local residents and plot holders in Coddenham were very keen to encourage wildlife onsite and asked a trust adviser to visit and make some recommendations to create and enhance the habitat for specific species.
