Oast house

I’ve lived in East Sussex (Isfield) all my life and never heard anyone write a song about an oasthouse.


Broadstairs Folk Week 2023

Quote:”An oastoast house or hop kiln is a building designed for kilning (drying) hops as part of the brewing process. They can be found in most hop-growing (and former hop-growing) areas and are often good examples of vernacular architecture. Many redundant oasts have been converted into houses. The names oast and oast house are used interchangeably in Kent and Sussex. In Surrey, Hampshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire they are called hop kilns.” Wikipedia> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oast_house
