The Garden

Volunteers from Fulham Palace Meadows Allotment Association (FPMAA) run this site by the River Thames. The allotments cover an Anglo-Saxon site of historical importance which is set within a designated Scheduled Ancient Monument area and is under the jurisdiction of English Heritage. In the later Middle Ages, Fulham Palace is said to have been the largest moated residence in Europe. The site was a gift from the Bishop of London in 1916. FPMAA plays a vital part in local life with local residents from all walks of life experiencing something very special within this inner-city haven of more than 400 plots.

Allotments entrance in Bishops Avenue opposite the tennis courts. Please note that this year there will not be access from Fulham Palace.
