  • Transcript:

    Q: Are hops often sent from Tunbridge to London by the Medway?

    A: I don't think many are sent by the River.  Very few, it is an uncertain mode of conveyance and it is very important for the growers to have hops in London quickly.  I have been a great sufferer myself by that.
