Great Shefford
Allotment Society

About our group

Formed in 2011 by a small group of enthusiasts and run from a site just outside the village at Northfield Farm with a linking footpath.

The Allotment Society was formed in 2011 by a small group of enthusiasts whose own gardens had insufficient space to allow them to grow their own fruit and veg.


Following a lengthy search for land in the Parish, David Liddiard came forward with the offer of a site at Northfield Farm. Triangular in shape, it was not the easiest to set plots out in, but thanks to the skill of a member, a plan was produced and 20 half plots were set out.

Work began in earnest on 1st April clearing what had been a dumping ground for bricks, tiles, and scrap machinery. There was a water supply to the site, but at one end, so not readily accessible for all plot holders, a plumber amongst the members set to work to install a second tank at the bottom of the site and by the end of April, all plots were occupied and growing had begun.

The Society manages the site, which it sub-rents from the Parish Council, with a small committee. From time to time plots are available to rent to people who live in the Parish. Please use the context us option above to enquire.
