The Bensham Manor Allotment Society
We are located at the end of Lion Road, Croydon.
There are two sites which make up our Society – Lion Road and Bert Road.
The land is leased from Croydon Council but we are self managed with a committee handling all lettings and maintenance.
We have an area of over 1400 rods, split over 183 plots, some large and some small. There have been allotments on this site for over 130 years. (see History).
Please see the Contact page to get in touch.
On the 19th December 2018 The Environment Secretary has stopped the sale of Slug Pellets containing Metaldehyde from the end of June 2019.
This means we will longer be able to supply you from the Community shop.
However we do have plenty of stock at present!
We’ll be hosting a plant and cake sale on Saturday 25th May from 10 till 1pm- come along to grab yourself a bargain! All proceeds will go towards Bensham Manor Allotments to help pay for equipment and materials to maintain the site
The plant and cake sale will take place at the Lion Road site
We need donations to make this happen- all will be gratefully received! Please could you drop them off at the site just before 10am
