Allotments snuggled under Wells cathedral at the back of the Bishop's Palace; water source, natural springs!
The allotments are about the same size as the plots being allocated in Ashford these days, and most are immaculate. The soil is an enviable silty loam. Fruit trees are clearly allowed and some of them are quite old and gnarled. Close-trimmed grass paths criss-cross the site, which is bounded by a post-and-rail fence on two sides, opening onto the Palalce grounds - on the other two sides, by the medieval stone wall of the precinct. Jealous, me???
