Allotments at Broad Chalke
Use of land as allotment gardens goes back to before the reign of Elizabeth I, but it was during the World Wars that allotments became really popular with city-dwellers and country people alike.
Fresh fruit and vegetables were in short supply, so driven by the government Dig for Victory campaign, townfolk dug up public parks, playing fields and village greens to grow their own.
