    Did they tear it out with talons of steel
    And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
    And washed it away as if it wasn't real?

    Thanks all.  Lots of allotments under pressure cos they're an easy target, especially for unimaginative councils and planners.   

    Given it's Huddersfield there must be all sorts of  "dark satanic mills" that could be converted to houses and apartments.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • I think several dark satanic mills have already been converted - much of the time to expensive luxury accommodation.

    Don't advocate the tarting up of them all - that way the North West will lose it's distinctive look.

    Certainly agree about the need to keep established Alottments going - in fact, the country could do with more of them.

    I don't think they need to be tarted up to provide accommodation.  Some of them are beautiful - just need internal insulation, leccy, plumbing etc.

    It seems these allotments are in peril because of plans to install an all weather football pitch which could just as easily be placed nearby.   What a waste!!
