The Hop Bin: Recollections, Songs and Stories from the Kentish Hop Fields by Fran Doel


Out of Stock

ISBN: 9780752493619 Category: Tags: ,


For 400 years Kent and East Sussex were vividly and visibly associated with the cultivation of hops. Fran and Geoff Doel have evoked this bygone world of hopping by gathering together a wide range of social and literary accounts poems and songs from the Tudor period to the present day each with a contextual introduction. The selection illustrates both the `rose-tinted’ image and the harsher reality of a distinctive aspect of rural life in the south east.
