About us

Who we are?

We are a self managed allotment site located in the holiday resort of Blackpool.

On site we have 75 plots (some half plots) where we grow different types of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

David Slack allotments has been a continuously cultivated site since 1941 over the years plot holders have enjoyed producing a huge amount of fruit and vegetables as well as well as socialising with fellow gardeners.
