Morden Allotments

Located six miles outside the borough adjacent to Morden Cemetery, this allotments site is low lying near the Pyl Brook and in the valley of the Beverley Brook. The site can seem damp over winter but is invariably lush and verdant the rest of the time. Nearby trees host many loud noisy birds.

An allotments site has existed alongside the cemetery for many years. In the 1980s it was offered as alternative to the displaced plot holders from the allotments site that was closed in Shillington Park SW11.

Plot holders take special interest in the natural environment, with a wildlife pond and stag beetle woodpile.

Entrance: two gates on the track leading from the end of Arthur Road KT3
