Welcome to the CNAA 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.

If you are new to allotmenting, and are a bit dispirited by the state of your newly rented allotment, take heart. Now is a good time to get it into shape as the weeds are not so vigorous. Have a look at the Hints and Tips pages, especially tips for newcomers, and tips for strugglers.


Don't forget that the association is on Facebook. Check us out here.. and like us (hopefully!).
