Sailor Prince Allotment

A bend in the River Wandle sweeps below this small friendly and sunny site. Partly silty loam and partly made ground, with a steeply dropping river wall, it is a small and friendly site. The former Wandle Primary School now private flats overlooks the old boundary wall onto the site. The other two sides comprise the back garden walls from Duntshill Road.
The Sailor Prince site was originally set up by the London County Council. It came to Wandsworth Council, along with the Beatrix Potter site, on the demise of ILEA. Plot holders were obliged to attend evening classes and learned how to grow vegetables.
The Sailor Prince joins with Beatrix Potter allotments for the Annual Vegetable Show each autumn, open to the public.
Entrance: Duntshill Road SW18
