An allotment is an area of
land, leased either from a private or local authority landlord, for the use of growing fruit and vegetables. In some cases this land will also be used for the growing of ornamental plants, and the
keeping of hens, rabbits and bees. An allotment is traditionally measured in rods (perches or poles), an old measurement dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. 10 poles is the accepted size of an
allotment, the equivalent of 250 square metres or about the size of a doubles tennis court.
Please note that Trawden Forest
