The week in pictures

The British Hop Association has announced the screening of a new Heritage Lottery-funded film called Stories From The Hop Yards inspired by a rediscovered photo collection and old film footage.

The film includes photos from a rediscovered collection, taken by local Herefordshire photographer Derek Evans. Capturing snapshots of life from the 1950s and 1960s, some of the images show families arriving for working or ‘hop holidays’ by train, cattle lorry or charabanc.
