Ours is part of a privately owned and managed (not council) site.  We pay 50 p.a., and no water.  I've never measured the plot, but it's around 30' x 70'.  With hedging between each allotment, so very private.  The only way I can really see what's going on in everyone else's lottie is via Google Map.  ;D  It's like having a second garden.  :)

2.5 poles 10 plus 5 water x 2
If I ever get it all right - then that's the time to quit.

I think ours is going to be around 27 for  a half plot and 40 for a full plot.

I've got one plot that is 21 for 125 sq metres, going up to 42 over that size and up to 250 sq m, with water laid on and an occasional visit from a tractor to cut the grass (no waiting list, lots of space). My other is about 125 and cost 8 with no water, privately owned.

My plot is 94' x 30' and we have just had our bill in for 25 (it was 21.10 last year).  I don't think this is bad as we get water too and we have just had loads of new taps installed and one is now right by my plot!

I have a half plot, about 30ft by 45ft on a private (rather than council) run site in South Manchester.
Have just paid this years rent, a bargain price of 10.00 plus 1.50 membership. I would be happy to pay twice that amount ! Look at the price of veg in Tescos etc.
Limited parking, reasonable security and no one is more that 2 plots distance from a tap. No toilets but we right next to a railway line with plenty of big trees !!
biggest nuisance is the wretched foxes
