What we do
Marina allotments in St Leonards-on-Sea
It is a self-managed allotment of about 120 plots. It is situated in the West of the town with a wonderful view of the sea looking towards Bexhill and Eastbourne
It is a place of tranquillity and friendliness but at the same time a hive of activity. And the result is a very productive allotment with a large variety of fruit and vegetables as well as flowering plants to add colour to the landscape.
