Barnburgh and Harlington Allotments
We are lucky in that we have 2 allotment sites in our villages. Situated on Barnburgh Lane, Barnburgh and Furlong Road Harlington. Known as Barnburgh Allotments the Barnburgh Lane site is managed by the Parish Council and the Furlong Road site known as Barnburgh and Harlington Allotments are self-managed.
Applications for allotments should be made to each sites allotment society but due to the popularity of 'growing your own' demand is strong and there are waiting lists at both sites. Barnburgh and Harlington site have their own web page here
