Lots and lots of English hops is the short overview. Along with a few Styrians and one lot of Californian. That's no surprise. From the 1950s the UK was pretty much self-sufficient in hops. No need to import any. It seems to have almost completely ended hop imports from the USA.
About all you see in the first couple of decades after WW II are European hops. Quite often Styrian. Presumably because they were cheap. Quality hops like Hallertau and Saaz also crop up a little.
Between 1946 and 1965 only in three years, 1956, 1959 and 1961 were insufficient hops grown to cover domestic needs.

During the 1950s hip imports were minimal, though they did start to increase in the 1960s, they still amounted for well under 10% of the hops used in UK brewing.
