In a way, it's dead dull. Nothing other than English hops, mostly without any variety or even region of growth specified. And, in the later part of the time slice, without the harvest year, either.
When they could be arsed to mention the year, it was mostly reasonably recent. By that, I mean from the most recent season or the one before that. Pretty typical of the practice at most breweries at the time.
There's probably some significance in the fact that the only varieties mentioned by time are quite recent ones - Brewer's Gold and Northern Brewer. Likely because they didn't consider mentioning the obvious varieties such as Fuggles or Goldings.
The lack of foreign hops isn't a surprise. In the period covers, the UK was about self-sufficient in hops, which hadn't been the case in the preceding 100 years.
