Hungerhill Gardens
Hungerhill Gardens are reputedly the largest and oldest allotments gardens in the world. Unfortunately only the neglected plots are visible. The well tended ones are protected by high fencing and hedges. In the Victorian times many plots had well constructed brick chalets which the residents of east Nottingham used as a refuge and escape from the city. I am sure many of these chalets still exist but was disappointed I couldn't see any. Hungerhill Gardens have been listed as Grade II* by English Heritage.
