7/77 Oasthouse approx 8m north
- west of Spring House
Disused oasthouse. Mid/late C19, some early C20 alterations. Flemish bond
brick with burnt headers used decoratively in places; kilns have peg-tile
roofs, stowage roof replaced with corrugated asbestos.
Plan: The stowage is on a north south axis facing west. Circular hop kilns
on the 2 left (northern) end corners. Stowage extended northwards in early
C20. 2 storeys with integral lean-to outshot on south end.
Exterior: The eastern front of the stowage has a ground floor garage-size
doorway at ground floor with a window to left and loading hatch doorway to
right at first floor. All these openings have been rebuilt in the C20. The
window like others around the stowage is iron-framed with glazing bars. Both
sections of the stowage roof are gable-ended. The hop kilns have a corbelled
cornice including a dentil band of burnt headers. Tall conical roofs. Only
the western kiln still has a cowl.
Interior: Not inspected.
This oasthouse, along with the nearby Maltings (q.v.), plays an important
visual role on the western approach to Hadlow. They also indicate the
historic importance of brewing to the local economy.
