The Chairman welcomes new members to Tommy’s Field Allotments and hopes
that this website provides a helpful introduction to the association.
Tommy’s Field is set in a very attractive location on the banks of the
river Wansbeck, with views up to the medieval castle gates. A public
footpath runs through the centre of the site and many walkers as well as
local residents come to enjoy the open aspect of the allotments.
The site provides the people of Morpeth with the opportunity to grow
their own vegetables and flowers on a rich and fertile loamy soil. It
also forms part of a wildlife corridor and although rabbits are actively
discouraged, it allows for a range of bees, butterflies and other insect
life to flourish. The ethos of the elected committee is to continue the
tradition of the site and keep it an open and welcoming green lung for
the use of the local community where gardeners can tend their plots in a
relaxed and untroubled manner.
