Eight retro Hartlepool and East Durham gardening scenes as we get ready for National Allotments Week

Get your gardening gear on! We're going on a retro trip to Hartlepool and East Durham's allotments.

National Allotments Week gets under way on Monday next week and it celebrates everything to do with these havens of horticulture fans.

There are great allotment sites in our own neighbourhood and we are taking a look back at some which have made the news over the years, from Briarfields to Waverley.

Fancy joining us as we cultivate some memories?
