Dorrington Road Allotments

We are located in Scotforth area of Lancaster, the entrance being at the south end of Dorrington Road (as viewed on this Streetmap)  


The 3.725 acre site consists of 81 well-established plots and is boarded by mixed species hedges leading onto broad leaf woodland. We have numerous trees and shrub area’s set aside for wildlife. A track runs through the site towards a secluded top field giving access to all plots. 

Although the site has a mains water supply we encourage plotholders to use rain water via water harvesting techniques.


This is a self managed site as opposed to those managed by a local authority and is leased to us by Lancaster City Council. The association is managed by a committee which is responsible for ensuring the association maintain the site, let plots and collect rent. 

Over the years we have received support for various projects from Lancaster City Council, the Lancashire County Council Green Partnership Awards Scheme and Second Homes Fund.

We are also affiliated to the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners.(
