Barnfield Road Allotments, Barnfield Road East, Davenport, Stockport, July 2006

These allotments were started in 1918 and came to prominence during World War 11, when they were extensively used in the “Dig for Britain” campaign.  Since then they have gone through various phases and are now so popular there is a long waiting list.

Unfortunately there has been no record kept of butterfly sightings but hopefully we should be able to rectify that.  In April 2006 the group was offered the opportunity to clear a heavily overgrown area and turn it into a border, planted with nectar-rich plants and shrubs.  This is an ongoing project and with donations of both herbaceous and wild flowers from members, it is developing into a butterfly- attractive site.
