Not without a survey, of course! (without wanting to imply Ed doesn't survey

Just in case anyone is tempted, one of the allotments I checked in Southwark
showed up on the council's Mastermap web mapping service, in the Yahoo!
aerial imagery and looked a bit like an allotment in the higher resolution
Bing and Google imagery. But in fact it is completely overgrown and disused.

Do please check them on the ground.
