    Default allotments in rothwell, advice please!

    hi, I am after an allotment in Rothwell, Leeds.
    I live in woodlesford and was wondering if anyone knew of any sites that dont have a huge waiting list and also any contact names to get in touch to get onto a waiting list?



    thanks

    Hi Nhb and welcome!
    I would start with the local councils and parish councils. Our council has a great website and online maps of free plots and online applications. Im nowhere nearLeeds though but maybe they do something similar there?

    Keep trying the phone, but better results can be got by actually going up to the site and talking to some of the plotholders.

    I got my last two plots by this method
