Buston Manor Oast
Three round kiln oast house. Brick built kiln roofs.

This was the smaller of three oast houses at the farm. A large eight round kiln oast house to the North West of the remaining building was demolished in the 1960s or 70s and replaced with a ridge ventilated oast house North of the remaining building. This was demolished mid 2000s.
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 Link
