Beverley Town Council maintains five allotments within the Beverley parishes: Sparkmill, Kitchen Lane, Queensgate, Lairgate and Keldgate.

Our handyman is responsible for maintaining the shared facilities at each site, and allotment holders are expected to maintain their plots to a reasonable standard.

Allotment representatives from each site are invited to meetings of the Property and Services Committee to discuss issues at each site for the attention of the Town Council.

If you would like to enquire about obtaining an allotment lease at any of these sites, please contact the Beverley Town Council Offices or download the form and send it back to us.

Queensgate allotment representative

Lance Wardell.jpeg

My name is Lance Wardell, Iʼm the Queensgate Allotment representative. I am 75 years old and live in Beverley.

I rent two plots on the site, growing a mixture of soft fruit and vegetables and feel it is an excellent way of keeping active.

Taking an active role in most things that occur on the site, helping new plot holders settle in and assisting established plot holders with their problems and trying to resolve them, I find very rewarding.

I have lived in Beverley for approx 15 years and both my son and daughter live here too and I have three grandchildren.

I had my own graphic design business until I retired seven years ago.

I have a liking for early jazz, but my real love is classical music.

Iʼm also the Publicity Officer for Friends of Beverley Art Gallery and serve on the Beverley Allotments and Gardens Association committee.

Please contact me on 01482 871469 or 07806573256, or find me on the allotments.

Kitchen Lane allotment representative

My name is Alan Stainton and I have rented Plot K29 on Kitchen Lane since 1999. 

If I can offer any advice to new allotment gardeners, I will be only too pleased to help.

Please telephone me on 01482 872883 or 07788 659601, or just find me on the allotments.

Queensgate Allotment Representative

My Name is Rod Coles, and I have been on the Queensgate allotment for 6 years. Before that I was on St Nicholas Fields and Sparkmill allotments.

My wife and I can produce enough fruit and veg for the whole family, to last a full year. We enjoy the hobby very much, but as one of the guys on the allotment says " when you make it seem like work, then give it up".

It is a very social hobby for the young and old alike, there is always always someone to give help and advice. I hope to carry on with my allotment for many more years to come
