One of the Towns most enjoyable attractions and an area of immense community pride and appeal, often referred to as the jewel in the crown of Woodbridge.

We manage a small plot of allotments on Kingston Field between the tennis courts and railway line. There are seventeen plots which are made available to individuals by way of a tenancy agreement. Tenants pay a flat rate yearly rent and then a share of the water bill. 

The waiting list is extremely long with a current wait of over ten years. The Council has sought land for additional allotments but with such land at a premium in the town, it has not been possible to increase our allotment capacity. 

To be eligible to join the waiting list you must be a resident in the Parish of Woodbridge, a map of which can be found here

If you are a resident and wish to join the waiting list, please contact our Administration Assistant via email
