Thanks for the quick reply. We do not have the legal title to our site as it is a Local Authority owned site, nor do we have sight as yet of the Cemetery title.
The allotment site pre-dates WW2 ... I believe it may date back to soon after the allotments act around 1832.
The council had let the site decline and in 1999 there were two tenants. Since 2004 there has been increasing activity and we are now nearly fully let with 45 tenants.
We have had access for the last six years without problem - I think the cemetery overlooked replacing in the drop-kerb when they renewed the road 18 months ago.
Thanks Tom - that's great information. One issue: our site does not have a postcode. Could you clarify what needs to be done in that regard please?
The Map coordinates are 51.559077, 0.055608 (those will show you the site in Google Maps).
The access was to the south east of those coordinates where the end of the "South Boundary Road" in the cemetery is adjacent to the bridle path.
The gate is still there and used by authorities.
Thanks for the very useful information.
