Even though our lavender field was planted over 25 years ago many people still confuse us with other local commercial lavender fields.
We are tucked away within Stanley Road allotments - you can't see us from the main road - see maps here.
For volunteering sessions the best way to find us is to look for Oaks Way Centre, SM5 4NQ as the gate to our field is right next to this Day Centre for the elderly. We are NOT near to Oaks Park.
For our harvest open weekend the entrance gate is via Fir Tree Grove, SM5 4NQ and the exit and toilets are at Oaks Way Centre. Very limited parking is available for blue badge holders only at Oaks Way Centre over the harvest weekend.
