Is Tetts the yard  on RHS just up the Mall from the old A2? If so it is shown as Tile &  Pipe works on all the Old maps from 1860 odd, there is a smithy on the earlier ones next to the station, gone by 1907

   Well done Seafordpete, :) I couldnt locate Tindall,s in Historical Directories (the site wasnt working.)   
   Frederick was Johns oldest brother and I presume he founded the Preston Ironworks .
   Frederick and John were born to John and Elizabeth Tindall at Ashford.Frederick  circa 1821 and John 1828 7 years younger.
    John actually started his career as a Carpenter. Frederick was a Machine Maker from the start and by the age of 30 employed 2 men and 1 boy. In later years shown as employing 17 men.
   Most likely one of the men was brother John.
   The iron works were located in the Mall at Faversham .  I cant help but  wonder if it was their site that later became the Tetts yard?

Hi Islesy,
     The name on the main spar of the press is that of the Manufacturer in most cases.
     A lot forKent Hop Farmers were made by Tetts.
    This old press you have found was most probably the work of John H. Tindall of Preston ,Faversham who was an Agricultural Machine Maker circa 1855 -1890. :)

Funny that you mentioned the Hop Marketing Board Seafordpete, until I did some reading up on the subject I had thought that it was every farmer for himself. I'll try to remember to post up my notes later on.

Not a name I came across in my days at Fremlins Faversham. As it is on a hop press almost certainly the farmer or the supplier. With a few exceptions hops were grown independently and sold to the brewers or later to the Hop Marketing Board at Paddock Wood. Whitbreads had the farm at Beltring and Guinness one at Bodiam but not aware of any others

Haven't been able to unearth anything on this firm, so I'll throw it open to the real experts on here!

Came across this Hop Press at Bekesbourne's Chalk Pit Farm


Not sure whether this would have been an agricultural company or a brewing company, hopefully someone can fill in the blanks?
