Located in the villlage of Madeley, Staffordshire, the allotment holds 41 plots and has been an ecologically-sound staple in the local community whilst promoting self-sufficiency and pioneering a zero carbon footprint ever since it began in 1851. Our tenants are of all ages, backgrounds and creeds as we embrace cultural diversity and share the passion of getting closer to nature.
We look to sow the seeds of the future as well as embrace the captivating history of the land. Named after The Honourable Annabella Crewe, she had the Offley Well Head built during 1850 in memory of her aunt, Honourable Elizabeth Emma Cunliff-Offley. This provided a fountain of water for the allotment plots. The fountain is not in working order but remains standing as a memorial and a captivating piece of local history.
