J A Simon, a refugee from Alderney in the Channel Islands, and his colleagues build a hay rick in the sunshine at Kew Gardens. Kew cuts its own hay for the five Suffolk Punch horses which are used in the garden. They are building a traditional Channel Island rick, using a very large ladder. A horse and cart can be seen to the right of the photograph.
