The Garden

Allotments are, by their very nature, hidden treasures and the site of Branch Hill Allotments is no exception. Located on the corner of Oak Hill Way, Branch Hill and Frognal Rise, dozens of vegetable plots have been developed in the former gardens of an Edwardian mansion. John Spedan Lewis, founder of the John Lewis Partnership, lived at Branch Hill House for many years. In the 1970s enterprising and green-fingered locals started growing vegetables organically on the site and the Branch Hill Allotments Association now manages the plots for Camden Council.
