South East Mini Meet for September http://www.kesr.org.uk/downloads-section/category/26-hoppers-weekend.html
On the 8 and 9 September, visitors to Bodiam station can enjoy a whole weekend of “opping nostalgia” as the Kent & East Sussex Railway hosts its annual Hop Pickers Weekend. Bodiam was an important area for hop picking and the weekend re-lives the days when Londoners came 'dahn 'opping' for a summer break. Each summer hop pickers used to arrive in specially timetabled trains from London and this year the railway is celebrating 54 years since the last Hop Pickers Special arrived at Bodiam station.
Note there is no parking at the station, therefore I suggest meeting at Bodiam Castle car park by the cafe at 10am. Bodiam Station is just a short walk from here. The Castle car park is free to National Trust members, not sure of cost to non members. The address and map below is for the location of the event not for the parking. Post code for Bodiam Castle is TN32 5UB
