The St Anns Allotments, Nottingham, is a very special and unique allotment site.
It is the oldest and largest area of Victorian detached town gardens in the world and is listed Grade 2* by Historic England. The site covers 75 acres and sits in the heart of the city.


STAA was formed in 1998 by a group of allotment holders from the St Anns Allotments who aimed to protect and improve these historic gardens of St Anns.

Our main roles are:

  • working with other organisations to improve and protect the heritage of the site
  • providing opportunities for all members of the community to benefit from the site.

STAA also runs an education project on the Community Orchard. It offers activities aimed at local schools and nursery groups, and holds activity days each month, where everyone can get involved.

If you would like to have a look at the site and its heritage, and see some of the education work we are doing, view our gallery pages and the Community Orchard’s short film.
