Mass of brambles

I REFER to the article on page 14 Mercury Green Scene for the week ending January 29 regarding the shortage of allotments.

Can I suggest that you look at a parcel of land south of Windwhistle School, bounded to the west by the railway loop line and to the south by a rhyne? It can be accessed off the path leading from Coleridge Road to St Johns AFC on the Bournville Estate.

I have a photo taken in 1959 which shows well drained allotments there (so presumably owned by the borough council), though now it is a mass of brambles. It is about 1.5 hectares in area and it seems a shame that it is not put to better use, even if only in the short term, as it may be reserved for a long term railway use.
