What a beautiful allotment you have. I live in Shropshire and like you I am trying to find ways of growing local food in a sustainable way. My particular interest is perennial vegetables. They can be grown as part of a forest garden, integrated in a permaculture veg garden or a more traditional veg patch or grown in polycultures (which is how I grow them). I think they are part of the answer to growing local food sustainably.
I have a blog about my gardening exploits at for anyone who is interested and I am happy to help with any queries people may have.
Best wishes
