Converted Cowl at Cronks Farm
Converted Cowl at Cronks Farm
Many disused cowls can be found in gardens around the areas from which oast houses originate, often in the garden of the oast house itself, as this one is.

Much like the oast houses they once adorned, some cowls are converted to living accommodation, in the form of dove cotes.

The cowl was fitted to the top of the kiln roof of an oast house. It pivoted with the wind to allow the hot air from the fired kiln below to be drawn through the hops and out through the top. Read more about cowls LinkExternal link
