Transformation, hop field to orchard, Staplow
Transformation, hop field to orchard, Staplow
A hopfield complete with poles and lines has been converted to an orchard with the planting of trees.
A sign of the times with decreasing requirements for hops.
Was it the high cost and effort needed to remove the poles compared to their second hand value that determined them being left here unused?
