Our allotments are situated down Wick Lane, opposite the Leisure Centre.

DALGA has a sublease for the allotments from Downton Parish Council. The DALGA committee look after the letting and  management of the allotments and so should be contacted in the first instance.

Please contact Chris Hall, if you wish to go onto the waiting list, on 01725 511877 or

DALGA holds an annual AGM, and regular committee meetings. The committee arranges the occasional social gathering and has planted fruit trees in the communal orchard area and hedging plants alongside the adjoining field for wildlife and a wind break. A seed scheme is in operation where allotment holders get a good discount on seeds and plants from a supplier, and DALGA gets a further discount which goes towards site maintenance.
