Ropery Test House & Mens' Search Room
« Reply #1 on: August 01, 2011, 10:56:02 »
The Ropery Test Hose & Mens' Search room is located in one of Hemp Houses (http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=11381.0).

Not sure exactly what the men were searched for in here but presumably it was for matches, flints or any other item that could start a fire. Does anyone else have any other ideas?
