The very snazzy allotments near to me cost £35 a year with pic-nic area, shop and toilet facilities on site - free horse manure too! I suspect that people might pay that much if they think it is the going rate.... London, I suspect, could get that pricey.
What a shame! I should stick to your own plot and make the 3 mile journey!

My allotment in East Grinstead costs about £13 a year, we have water troughs, a car park and some communal tools to borrow. Close proximity is quite important as if it's nearby you are more inclined to pop down there regularly. Also,it's cheaper than moving to a house with a larger garden!
