No they were called allottments and they were behind the back fence.  Allottments are very common in the UK. They rent the space.

I was born in England but we didn’t have an allotment.

Hi Edie,

 

Allotments in the UK tend to be at the edge of a town, all grouped together. I think what you described behind houses would be just back gardens being put to good use.

 

Did you know that there is a specific Islay group? Islay@Scotland-Genealogy. groups.io

 

Best wishes, Morag
