Oast House In Brenchley

Oast House In Brenchley

Oast houses are peculiar to this part of the world. You find them in Kent and East Sussex and- as far as I'm aware- nowhere else. What they are is kilns for the drying of hops- for use in beer. These days they're uneconomical to run and large numbers of them have been converted to other uses. There's one just up the road from here that's used as a B & B; Ailz and I stayed in it once. Circular rooms- what fun!
