Gate, Pickard's Small Field former allotment site
Gate, Pickard's Small Field former allotment site
This forlorn and rusting gate to the former allotments at Pickard's Small Field is no longer in use, and the footbridge crossing the small stream on the other side has been removed. Allotment holders were evicted from Pickard's Small Field (not to be confused with Pickard's Field, also an allotment site, which lies west of Pinehurst Road) in the mid-2000s, when the land was sold off for housing. But development has still not taken place, and meanwhile all waiting lists for allotments in the Borough have been closed due to over-subscription.
