Woodhouse Moor Allotments

Filed under: General — Bill @ 5:56 pm

Dig 270

Allotments were established on Woodhouse Moor in February 1917. These were all completely removed in 1923. Allotments were re-established in March 1940 as part of the “Dig for Victory” campaign. These were removed in 1953, and replaced by a smaller area comprising 92 allotments. The council said that these were temporary and would be removed when the emergency (rationing) was over. They are still in place today.
