Since starting this site I have been searching for details of how and when Guinness came to Bodiam.  I have been lucky enough to borrow cuttings from "Guinness Time" saved by Mrs Lettie Foster.

The articles are titled Early Days at Bodiam and were written by Mr L P Haynes who was manager of Bodiam Hop Farms from 1917 to 1946.  They were published in "Guinness Time" around 1953.

Below are links to the articles.  Copies of the actual pages may take some time to load so an alternative is a text only version.  Please click on the appropriate link below.
