Nathan Mayer Rothschild, 1st Baron Rothschild, Baron de Rothschild Bt GCVO PC (8 November 1840 – 31 March 1915) was a British banker and politician from the international Rothschild financial dynasty. Known as "Natty," he was the eldest son of Baron Lionel de Rothschild (1808–1879) and Baroness Charlotte de Rothschild (née von Rothschild). Natty was renowned for his public spirit and generosity. Notwithstanding his support for free enterprise, he embarked on a major programme of housing and improvement across his estate, effected by his agent Richardson Carr and the architect William Huckvale.
A hospital and nursing service, allotments and recreation grounds were among the facilities he provided. The estate became renowned for its Jersey cattle and its Shire horse stud, and for hosting the annual one day Tring Show, precursor of the Herts Show. - See more at: chilternsaonb.org

Allotments have been in existence for hundreds of years, with evidence pointing back to Anglo-Saxon times. But the system we recognise today has its roots in the Nineteenth Century, when land was given over to the labouring poor for the provision of food growing. This measure was desperately needed thanks to the rapid industrialisation of the country and the lack of a welfare state. In 1908 the Small Holdings and Allotments Act came into force, placing a duty on local authorities to provide sufficient allotments, according to demand.
However it wasn’t until the end of the First World War that land was made available to all, primarily as a way of assisting returning service men (Land Settlement Facilities Act 1919) instead of just the labouring poor.
The rights of allotment holders were strengthened through the Allotments Acts of 1922, but the most important change can be found in the Allotments Act of 1925 which established statutory allotments which local authorities could not sell off or covert without Ministerial consent, known as Section 8 Orders. Further legislation has been listed over the intervening years which have affected allotments, the latest of which is the Localism Act 2011.
