Horfield and District Allotment Association –The Allotment Sites
Baptist Field – This is the field on Golden Hill where the new black water storage tanks are situated. On the top right with the prison behind you.
This field is also accessed from Donkey Lane – first gate on your left approaching from Longmead Avenue.
Birchall Field – On its own, this field is used as an informal right of way, so security is a completely different ball game. The field slopes in two different directions and is very sunny. It also has a large underground Wessex Water storage tank.
It can be accessed on foot from Birchall Road or by vehicle via a lane off Cairns Road.
