Period17th Century
In 1985 survey and excavations of an earthwork enclosure at Pengawse revealed beds of several different shapes, from long, thin, rigs, to square features. The upper parts of the sections, presumably those which had been cultivated, produced pottery suggesting a seventeenth to early eighteenth century date, and constructional details of the cultivation beds were usefully revealed.
Although clearly post-medieval, it seems likely that the type of enclosure, its layout of beds and the gardening technique employed in it, probably owed a great deal to medieval traditions, of which there are too few recognisable traces.
