Four Acres (2)

Accommodation land in Yeovil Marsh


Four Acres (2) (Parcel 1189) was accommodation land in Yeovil Marsh. Accommodation land is a term that originated in the early nineteenth-century and was applied to land, often adjoining a town or village, that was let for cultivation or pasture. Accommodation land generally did not form part of a farm.

The 1846 Tithe Apportionment (at least the copy held in the Heritage Centre at Taunton), does not record the details of Four Acres (2), but an alternative source gives a size of 4a 0r 4p and describes it as arable for growing crops.

Four Acres (2) (Parcel 1189) was bounded on the west and north by Greenmoor Lane, to the east by The Four Acres (Parcel 1190) and to the south by Home Close (Parcel 1191).
