I stumbled on the Library of Birmingham, ‘Digging Around’ project a while back.

According to their website, ‘”Digging Around” offers you a glimpse of the allotment project funded by the Centre for Sustainability and Innovation at Aston University. This was developed in conjunction with staff from Birmingham Libraries and Archives and Dr John Blewitt, using many of the Central Library’s impressive archive collections.’

Some lovely photographs and press cuttings covering Birmingham’s allotment history and Birmingham’s place in British allotment history, including a section on Professor Harry Thorpe, and his influential report.
