Are these hop vine posts and wires? Suggests possibly a farm in Kent.

Timber posts supporting wires for hops to grow on.

Looks like an old orchard - some trees remaining. If ridge and furrow then done by steam plough because straight.

Original Timber frame house - probably lowly status due to simlpe squared timber frame.

I think it is Brockbury Hall - Most of the buildings fit as do most of the hedge rows although some of them are parch marks on Google earth rather than the hedges. Also the railway track running right along the top edge also fits. The image seems to be reversed

Many thanks - not only a correct location, but also that the image needs to be flipped. We'll make the changes and the revised record with the correct location will appear here in due course, along with the image the right way around.

Hops are also widely cultivated in Sussex, Worcestershire and Herefordshire.

I would guess that the field markings are medieval ridge and furrow as the fact that they don't follow the field boundaries at this time implies they predate them.
