Horse-drawn carts arrive at the oast house on a hop farm in Yalding, Kent, to deposit their load of 'pokes,' sacks of freshly-picked hops. The hops will be dried and compressed in the oast house, ready for onward transportation to the brewer.

Hop picking in Kent was a much-needed holiday in the fresh air and a way to earn some extra cash. Here we have Nobby' Dewsett (the sailor) with the Audley and Dewsett families of Brunel Road, c.1940.
