Welcome to Ullesthorpe

Baldwins Charity and Allotments

For more information, contact us on 07802 459999 or

The Annual General Meeting will be held in the Village Hall at 7pm on Thursday 16th February 2023.

Everyone is welcome to join us for this meeting.

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.


New allotments available

During 2022 we managed to obtain grant funding to allow us to extend the growing area and increase the number of allotments, we have allocated some to those on the waiting list and have several allotments available for immediate use.

Allotment gardening is great fun and extremely rewarding, but it is also a lot of hard work, so if you don’t think you can manage a full sized plot, don’t be put off asking for a smaller one. To apply please contact Richard Goodman at,
