 It was allotments used to cover all the ground from the cemetery to the top of Palmestone Rd  through to the alley behind Magpie Hall Rd good scrumping grounds for us kids in the 50s.

My wife is not 100% sure, but thinks it was allotments. It is right next to Chatham 'Old Cemetery', and we don't think they would have built on part of that, and we are both sure there were no other buildings there.
