Hummersknott Allotments Association Ltd

Welcome to the Hummersknott Allotments Association Limited (AKA KnottyPlots) web site. We are a privately allotment society owned by our members and run by a group of volunteers. The allotment site covers 4.42 acres in the Hummersknott / Mowden area of Darlington. The society came into being on the 1st May 1917. Before this the area was the kitchen garden and orchard for Hummersknott Hall. For more about our history please see the "Our History" page.

Centenary commemorative film

Our Centenary commemorative film is still available to members who want it.

You can get your copy in two formats - either on a DVD or on a USB storage device (the USB version is full High Definition).

To get a DVD - simply send me your address via Facebook or email me at

If you prefer a USB version - you will need to provide a USB device with a minimum 3.5GB of free space. Pop the USB into a padded envelope (or pop it in a normal envelope, but wrap it up well in kitchen paper). Please write your name & address on the envelope. You can either give this to Paul Wattam in person or alternatively, mark it for his attention and leave it on the table in the Top Pavilion.
