Hops are growing next to the Thames Path on the Greenwich Peninsula.

They have been planted by Greenwich’s Meantime Brewery which claims it to be “the first permanent hop farm in London in over 100 years”.

The harvesting, or hopping, gathered 9lbs of hop buds for the yet to be named brew being produced at Meantime’s Old Brewery in Greenwich.

The hops, growing just yards west of the Greenwich Meridian line, can be seen immediately downstream of the drawdock next to the O2.

Meantime claims that it is a permanent feature.
