Derelict Oast House at Nore Farm, Blackham, East Sussex, taken 8 years ago
A single round kiln oast house, now just a shell. Most of the stowage walls have disappeared and all roofs are missing. Judging by the end wall of the stowage it would have had a hipped roof.

Oast Houses
An Oast House is a building used to dry fresh hops before they are sent to the brewers, to be used for flavouring beer. A traditional Oast House consists of the 'oast' and the 'stowage'. The oast was a kiln, with a plenum chamber fired by charcoal at ground floor and the drying floor directly above. The steep pitched roof channelled the hot air through the hops to the top. The stowage, was the barn section, it had a cooling floor and press at first floor and storage area at ground floor. Read more LinkExternal link
