Hop Hoodening

Hops came to Kent in the sixteenth century and were picked by hand by people from the East end of London until the twentieth century.

Hop Hoodening is the Kentish harvest festival featuring the traditional Hooden Horse, a hobby-horse with snapping jaws.

There is a service in the Nave attended by the Hop Queen who arrives in a bower constructed of hop-bines. Morris men dance during the service and afterwards in the precincts.
