Allotments near Langdale, Monkseaton
Allotments near Langdale, Monkseaton
These allotments are bounded to the north by Whitley Bay High School which officially opened on the 07th December 1963, to the east by the old Avenue Branch of the Blyth & Tyne Railway, to the south by Langdale and to the west by Alder Grove. Whilst the history of allotments goes back many centuries, it was not until the Small Holdings and Allotments Act 1908 came into force that local authorities were legally obliged to provide "sufficient allotments according to demand". This duty was further extended with the passing of the Land Settlement Facilities Act 1919 with the rights of allotment holders being strengthened by the Allotments Act 1922. However, the most important change was introduced when the Allotments Act 1925 established statutory allotments which local authorities could not sell off or covert to other uses without Ministerial consent.
