Little Chester Allotment Association

Little Chester is an allotment site covering 10.8 acres and currently offering approximately 169 plots. The allotments are well used and have excellent on-site facilities.

Our plot holders are diverse in age, nationality and experience, and this gives the site a unique feeling of community and a wide range of produce being grown.

The allotments primarily serve the residents of the surrounding areas of Derwent Heights, Chaddesden, Chester Green and Oakwood. However, this should not deter people from applying outside these areas, providing time and travel permits.

The site is owned by Derby City Council, leased by Little Chester Allotment Association and managed by an elected Committee. The Committee is made up of volunteers who work hard to ensure all members are able to enjoy recreational gardening to the maximum, in a safe and supportive environment.

We have excellent on-site facilities including a toilet block with electric lights and flush toilets. There is also a shop – the Trading Post - and an adjacent community room where you can make hot drinks. The area is accessible via a wheelchair-friendly ramp to allow access for everyone.
Throughout the year, we have open days, plant sales and BBQs among other things. Members receive a newsletter every 3 months and we have a Facebook page.

Where we are.
Little Chester Allotments are located just off Old Mansfield Road, Derby. Our main entrance is through the car park just by the sharp bend at the bottom of the hill. Postcode: DE21 4SA
