Newton Hall Allotments are situated near to Farnham Close in Newton Hall, Durham. There’s no official address for the site but if you are visiting you can navigate to Farnham Close, DH1 5FL and the west gates are nearby.

We are a friendly bunch of gardeners united in our love of producing our own fruit and vegetables, whatever the weather.

The allotments are self-managed, meaning we have a committee of trustees responsible for the smooth running of the site, and whilst Durham County Council are the landlords, we manage ourselves and set our own rents.  Why not take a look at the committee page and get to know us.
