Allesley Park Walled Garden Group
History and Heritage
Land records at Allesley go back more than 800 years, to the time when powerful barons ruled. Flynt Avenue in the village recalls Thomas who probably built the very first hall in the ancient deer park. In later years several important figures lived there: a prominent Coventry banker who founded Coventry’s first hospital; and an internationally renowned publisher who preferred the Arts and Crafts style of domestic architecture. This owner demolished an imposing Georgian mansion and created another hall that stands today.

No Dig trial
No-dig supports the microbes and life in our soil as it benefits from promoting natural aeration, drainage reduces erosion, along with other benefits. The no-dig gardening is becoming a more popular method across the world.
The no-dig trial was started in a small area on 22nd Oct. We’ve been satisfied with the progress and decided to expand to more areas later this year.
