Hop Farm Stilts

Looking up at the Hop Farm Stilt Walker on a farm in Wateringbury. 
These were used to enable the worker to get high enough to work on the top of the hop bind at stringing stage early season and to cut the hop binds at picking time. It was a common sight before the tractor was used to cut and take the hops to the picking machine. When the tractor was used it had a 'crows nest' on the trailer which the worker stood in to do the same job.
