Hops growing wild by canal Charles 2016-09-09 13:26:16
At the back of the new leisure area by the pillbox next to the canal is an abundance of hops growing over almost everything. I wondered if anyone knows where they may have originated from as it is unusual.

Having looked at old maps of the area, in the 1800's there was a pub on the site of the pillbox. On the opposite side of the canal near the road bridge was a brewery. This may explain the abundance of hops.

Does anyone have any information about the Westcombe family who lived at Greenway House, Adsborough in the middle of the 19th century or the Heale family who lived at Bay Tree House Adsborough in the late 18th/early 19th century? Also does anyone know where exactly these houses were/are? Thanks.
