and attached range con-
sisting of hop room, cow
shelter, cart shed and

hop rooms to north of hop kilns late C19. Hop kilns (at the south end of a
long rectangular range): sandstone rubble with brick dressings to window
surrounds and eaves, conical roofs with asphalt covering and vanes; circular
plan; south elevation: each has a pair of small symmetrically placed one-light
windows just above ground level and another pair immediately below the eaves,
between the two hop kilns is the brick gable end of the c1866 hop room with a
9-pane glazing bar fixed light under an elliptical head. Hop room, cow shelter,
cart shed and barn to north of hop kilns form a continuous range to the north:
sandstone rubble, brick dressings, tiled roofs; main east elevation to farmyard
and road has tallet stairs, to right of junction with hop kilns, leading up to
hop room; brick lean-to cow shelter, roughly central in the form of a cloister
with eight brick 4-centred arches supported on brick piers, along the back wall
of which at the foot of the cart shed is a continuous trough and rack; to the
right of the arches is a low two-leaved door under a segmental head leading
into the threshing floor of the six-bay barn. Rear elevation to west: segmental
heads, to the right are three casements, each with sixteen panes, to hop drying
floor above cart shed entries which consist of five brick arches supported on
piers, the left one with ledged doors; the right partly obscured by late C19 brick
hop rooms (adjoining the north hop kiln) which have louvred ventilators on the
slate roof; to the right of full height doors to the threshing floor is a large
brick ventilation panel about 10 feet high, to its left are two openings; the
north gable end has double leaved cart doors into the barn with a central loft
door above. Interior: the barn has a tallet at the north end and its trusses
are collars supported by queen posts bolted to the ties with angle struts from
queen posts to principals. Part of a model farmstead complex, adjoining Brook
farmhouse (qv), reputedly built by the Eastnor Estate. Included for group
value as a complete example.
