Shepherds Hill Allotments

Shepherds Hill was first laid out in the early 1920s after the land was donated to the then Hornsey council by a wealthy benefactor. It is now owned by Haringey council and enjoys statutory status, protecting it from sale/development 

The site has 213 plots at the last count and rising across 6-7 acres, largely half-plots (five poles, or rods), each measuring about 12-13 metres x 10 metres.  If a full-sized 10-pole plot falls vacant nowadays it is always split.

The Shepherds Hill site committee has evolved over the last 10 years from just a secretary and treasurer to between seven and eleven people. It meets every six months.


Shepherds Hill  is one of the largest and prettiest of Haringey's 27 allotment sites, it is not overlooked from any main road and is therefore one of the borough’s best-kept secrets, which means the oasis of peace and tranquillity is less prone to be disturbed by intruders and is not blighted by traffic noise.
