Assessing the Plot in Detail – 2

If you read yesterday’s episode of The Allotment Plotters – What is it about the ARs? – you’ll recall how Suze and l nicknamed the various parts of the plot to identify them more quickly, especially when it would eventually come to make decisions on how the spaces are best used.

What is it about the ARs?

I don’t know the exact size of Plot 17 just yet as l haven’t taken the time to measure it in the right way as in ‘rods’. Rods is an Anglo-Saxon measurement system that was calculated with the use of ‘poles’, of which one was equivalent to 5.03 m or 16 ft.6 in. An allotment of space, therefore, is dedicated to 10 rods or 250 metres square OR one double tennis court.
