Hop Gardens At Walters Farm? - a Memory of Ticehurst.

I'm sure I have seen this picture before, and think it is Walters Farm - it certainly looks like the Walters Farm Oast in the background. Walters Farm is 500 yards from the Bull at Three Leg Cross going down Tinkers Lane. It is no longer a farm, but it did last until the 1980s. Of particular interest is the wire work, quite modern for then as many farms still used chestnut poles for individual hop hills. I remember individual poles being used at Foxholes in the 1970s.
