Project Description

Food, Flowers, Feathers & Friendship

2008-2009

Tindale Crescent Allotments and Woodhouse Close Allotments are situated on the periphery of Woodhouse Close, Bishop Auckland in County Durham. Filmmakers worked with the allotment community interviewing members who grow vegetables, flowers, keep fowl, and race pigeons.  This documentary offers viewers an insight into a traditional pass-time, showing the pride the allotment holders have for their community.

Having an allotment is part of North East culture – we hope that these plots of land will continue to be available for future generations to enjoy.

Funded by Wear Valley District Council’s Neighbourhood Renewal, Neighbourhood Elements Fund as part of the Woodhouse Arts Programme.
