Hop yard at Cold Green Farm
Hop yard at Cold Green Farm
See LinkExternal link for the same view taken at the same time of year in 1986. There used to be hop poles in the field to the left of the track also. These have now been pulled up and hop-growing seems to be declining in this area. The female hop-picker from '86 agreed to re-pose for this picture. Attempts to locate her male co-worker proved unsuccessful.

(The Malvern Hills are visible in the background here. In the 1986 photo they are difficult to make out)
