Allotment Gardening – for those with a Passion
for gardening, and growing home grown fruit, flowers, herbs and
vegetables. Allotments are a great hobby. They're cheap, and a great
way to get fresh air, keep fit and active and meet new people. We
are friendly and family orientated and welcome all ages and gardening
abilities. North Ferriby allotments are available to local residents
of the village and surrounding villages.
We host the annual North
Ferriby Open Gardens BBQ for The Friends of North Ferriby Primary
School at the Allotments in July and organise other social events
throughout the year for Allotment holders and their families.

You will either be allocated a plot depending
on availability or, in many cases, add your name to the waiting
list. A small annual subscription is payable; £10-£20
depending on size of plot.
The Anne Turner Memorial Allotments are located in the heart of
the village on Church Road. The Turner family were the village's
most famous Victorian family. Originally wealthy merchants from
Liverpool the Turner family lived at Ferriby House (now North Ferriby
Nursing Home) from 1824-1902. They owned considerable amounts of
land in the village and their estate accounted for 3/4 of the village.
Mrs Anne Turner died 10 August 1902.
The estate was sold off
and the Allotments were presented to the Parish of North Ferriby
by her nieces and nephews in a Declaration of Trust Deed in 1905.
The Parish Council are the sole trustees of the land and it is registered
with the Charity Commission under number 221998.
