Part 1: Royston Allotment Improvements

Last year, Groundwork South Yorkshire took over the management of various allotment sites in Royston, Barnsley. It soon became clear that two sites, Jubilee Fields and Poplar Terrace, were in need of some improvement so that they could be fully enjoyed by the tenants.

This series will chronicle the changes that have taken place thanks to the hard work and determination of the Groundwork South Yorkshire team.

Part 1: Before

These sites had been neglected for a very long time; years, not months, in most cases.

Problems included fly tipping, stray and unauthorised livestock and general poor upkeep by the plot holder.
