Title:Penrose Allotments
Originator:Devon Gardens Trust
Summary:Notification that Penrose Allotments have been added to the Devon Gazetteer of Parks and Gardens. The allotments are considered to be contemporary with the adjacent almshouses, in continuous horticultural use since the latters foundation in 1627. The layout of the gardens, for productive rather than ornamental purposes, appears to have changed little in the succeeding four centuries.
