St Ives Town Council has 72 allotment plots at Trowan, west of St Ives which are currently all let but we do keep a waiting list for when plots become available.

In 2020, St Ives Town Council entered into a ten-year lease for the use the field at Trowan as allotments.  The field is flat, arable land.  Although slightly out-of-town, it can be reached by walking, car, bicycle and bus (bus stop is 5 – 10 minutes walk).  Parking is available in an adjacent field.  The site is within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making it an enjoyable place to work and also bringing with it the responsibility to keep the plots to an acceptable standard.

We currently hold a waiting list for those interested in a plot when one becomes available to those who live within the TR26 area. To find out more, or to be added to the waiting list email enquiries@stives-tc.gov.uk or call 01736 797840.

Our existing allotmenteers are a friendly bunch – new plot holders have been pleased with the advice and help they get from neighbouring allotment gardeners.
