An Allotment Photobook – copies now available in the Gunsite Shop

Photographers Hannah Blackmore and Jimmy Irwin worked with the Gunsite Allotment during 2020 to capture life during lockdown: finding moments for optimism, calm and stability. The series was developed into a limited edition photobook available for sale through the Gunsite Shop. 

Profits from sales of the book will be donated to the Trussell Trust network of foodbanks. Price £20.

Gunsite waiting list is now closed


We are very sorry to turn would-be allotmenters away, for the time being. But our waiting list has now reached 250 which means about an eight-year wait for an allotment.

So the Gunsite committee has decided to close the waiting list, at this point. The current plan is to reopen the list when it gets down to 150 names. This is likely to be in about three or four years’ time.

Please watch the Waiting List section of the website for any updates.
