Council run allotments

High Peak Borough Council is following the guidelines and advice from central government at this time. In line with the government, we are asking all plot holders, who are visiting their plot to follow the social distancing and hygiene protocols. Both Council run sites at Cunningdale, Buxton and Jordan Street, Glossop remain open for essential visits to livestock or as your daily exercise.  

For all other sites, please refer to your own association for guidance.

Please read the following guidelines from the National Allotment Society before visiting the site:
