A three round kiln oast house, the third kiln missing the original roof and cowl. The building was Grade II listed (N 410005) from 1976 until 1997, when the current owners bought it to use as a bed and breakfast and had it delisted.

A witch on a broomstick adorns each cowl vane.

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
