A Brief History:
The Nottingham Road and District Allotment Association (NRDAA) when first formed had several sites that were in Chaddesden and adjacent to Nottingham Road. Today there is but a single site that is managed by NRDAA and that is adjacent to Highfield Lane. The Highfield Lane has been work continuously since the 1920s and it was only couple of years ago that one plot holder from the 1920s had to give up his plot. Improvements on the site have been continuous and cars are now allowed on site. In the 1960s the rule was that cars were only allowed on site to make deliveries or collect produce. From the early 1970s we have installed a water supply. In the more recent times the site won Derby in Bloom's "Most Improved Site" in 2007 and then "Best Site" in 2008 and 2010. Improvements to the site have continued with the grant support from local and national bodies.
