History There are hints on maps from the 17th century that Bury Court then existed as a small village. It became a busy hop-farm and thrived as such until the 1980s. The influence of the hop-farm can still be seen today, particularly the oasthouse which can be used by the newlyweds as their wedding-night accommodation. In the mid-nineties it became Green Farm Plants, a successful nursery. The gardens were created to showcase plants sold in the nursery on the site of the former partially-walled farmyard. The threshing barn, where weddings take place, was moved to the site in the 1930s, and then restored and converted in 2002.
