Welcome to the Cottonmill & Nunnery Allotment Association website
The Cottonmill and Nunnery Allotment Association (CNAA) was established in 1994 and now supports allotment tenants on the Cottonmill, Nunnery & Sopwell Mill sites in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.
The allotments are owned by and leased from the St Albans City and District Council and we keep a 'watching eye' on them. We offer services encouraging and helping people to get the most out of their plots, organise frequent events and socials including our popular Annual Summer Show, offer discounts on seeds, suppliers and equipment hire and publish quarterly newsletters.
We hope you like our website, which is a work in progress so please forgive us if some pages aren't quite complete. We'd love to have your ideas for things you'd like to see on the new site.
Fires on the plots
Please remember you are only allowed fires on your plot between October 1st and March 31st each year between noon and dusk on Tuesdays and the 1st Saturday of the month ONLY. Burning waste outside these times could lead to you losing your plot as the Council takes this breach of tenancy very seriously.
If you do wish to have a fire during permitted months, make sure you contain the fire in an appropriate way and never leave the fire unattended.
