The Stock Lane allotment site is located on land leased to us by Lord Petre and has been the site of allotments since the early 1900s. Prior to this the land was used during the construction of the railway through Ingatestone in the early 1840s.

The allotments were administered by Ingatestone Parish Council until August 2014. As they Council wished to divest itself of the site’s management the Ingatestone Allotment Association was established based on the rules and processes of the National Allotment Society.

The Association held its first AGM in October 2015 and has already begun to improve the site, most recently removing two lorry-loads of rubbish in April 2016. This website, and an associated monthly newsletter are intended to improve communication with and between allotment holders to ensure the association’s membership is both engaged and fully represented.
