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
Petts Farm Oast
Twin round kiln oast house. The building was rebuilt and converted in 2013.



There was another square kiln oast house, and a farmhouse at Pett Farm. The buildings fell derelict and were vandalised. The oast house was demolished and the farmhouse rebuilt at the Museum of Kent Life. See TQ7458 : Petts Farmhouse at The Museum of Kent Life
