LIVE IN KINGS HILL
The history of allotments stretches back more than ten thousand years. They have been in and out of favour over the centuries but the ancient call to share common land is woven strongly into British life.
The Big Allotment Challenge
Allotments expert Jim Buttress first came to Kings Hill as a judge for South & South East in Bloom and has been part of the landscape ever since.
Through his television show – The Big Allotment Challenge – he has met growers all around the country: from schoolchildren inspired by their first plots to veterans who began growing veg when Kings Hill’s skies were filled with World War II Spitfires and Hurricanes.
The allotments are managed by the Parish Council and anyone interested in renting one should register with the council. Allotments are allocated via a waiting list. Demand was so strong that Liberty Property Trust and Kent County Council donated further land.
