Stocks Farm Oast
Triple round kiln oast house, missing cowls. The kilns are of various sizes and heights, suggesting each was added at a different time or was modified due to ineffective or over-effective draughting through the roofs.
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
