The current allotment site has been in use as ‘allotment gardens’ since before 1900 with tenants renting their plots from the landowner. In 1925 the three and a half acres were purchased by a trust formed with the purpose of holding the land for use as ‘allotment gardens only for the benefit of the villagers of Seal'. The allotment site is now included in the village's Conservation Area.
The only change in recent years is that the trustees have allowed people from the locality but who are not residents of Seal to rent plots, with the stipulation residents of Seal have priority. The day to day running of the site is undertaken by a management committee elected by the plot holders.
The plot holders are from a mix of backgrounds covering all age groups and have widely differing gardening experience. All manner of produce is grown.
