The Garden

Volunteers from the Fulham Palace Meadows Allotment Association (FPMAA) run this inner city haven of more than 400 plots, by the River Thames. The site was a gift from the Bishop of London in 1916 and the allotments cover an Anglo-Saxon site of historical importance, set within a designated Scheduled Ancient Monument area under the jurisdiction of English Heritage. In the later Middle Ages, Fulham Palace is said to have been the largest moated residence in Europe. FPMAA plays a vital part in the local community, with residents from all walks of life experiencing something very special here. The allotment entrance is in in Bishops Avenue opposite the tennis courts; please note that this year there will not be access from Fulham Palace.

Chairman of FPMAA: Donna Kunzig
