At the rear of the Penrose Almshouses in Litchdon Street, there are a number of allotment gardens that were originally designated for use by the occupants of the almshouses. However, these plots sometimes become vacant and are then able to be rented by townspeople living nearby. The gardens are administered by the resident caretaker (Mrs Carol Harvey) on behalf of the trustees of the Barnstaple Municipal Charities.
