The Bensham Manor Allotment Society

Lion Road Entrance

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.
