Baldwins Charity and Allotments
The Baldwins Charity Trust was set up in the 19th century to maintain an area of land on the western edge of Ullesthorpe for the benefit of the poor of the village. Part of this land is now used for grazing sheep and cattle and the footpath and track running across this area is in regular use by walkers. The other part is devoted to about 18 allotments.
The Baldwins Charity allotments are on the left at the bottom of the hill out of Ullesthorpe going towards Claybrooke.
We have allocated all the plots for the 2020 season. If you would like to have a whole or part of an allotment we can put your name on the waiting list and let you know as soon as space becomes available. Rent is £12 for the 2020 season.
Charitable donations by Baldwins Charity
We consider applications from any individual or organisation where a grant would in some way help to alleviate poverty and hardship. We have previously made grants to Ullesthorpe School, Ullesthorpe Pre-School and the local Scout group.
Here are some photos of the garden created by the Ullesthorpe Pre-School with the money donated by Baldwins Charity. The area is one where children can begin to learn about nature, growing things, and can have a quiet moment.
