What is an allotment? It sounds like someone gave you free land. Do they give away plots of land in the UK, just for asking?

An allotment is an area of land that can be rented from the local council for a reasonable price to grow fruit, veg and keep small amounts of livestock. Its handy if you don’t have the space at home. However theses days there are long waiting lists as it’s rather fashionable to have one. A bit annoying really, as I know people with huge gardens who have got or getting allotments.
During the war it was common to have an allotment. I think they provided a large portion of food for the towns at that time. It’s a shame that we don’t all try growing like that again. Builds responsibly and community I think.
Any more news on that man (should i say person?) hole you found on the property?
