1/261 Oasthouse approx 5m east of
Tatlingbury Farmhouse


Oasthouse. C19, probably 2 phases. Mostly English bond brick, both red and
ochre-coloured; some is timber-framed and clad with weatherboards; slate roof,
and hop kilns have coated brick roofs.

Plan: Large oasthouse. The double depth stowage is on a rough east west axis
with the west end facing into the farmyard. The stowage is open at ground
floor level on the north side. The rear (southern) section of the stowage is
not full length and there are 2 hop kilns behind the east end of the northern
stowage. At the east end is a cluster of 4 hop kilns, 2 each side of a narrow
extension of the northern section of the stowage.

Exterior: North long side of the stowage is 5 bays; an open arcade of plain
posts at ground floor level and at first floor level there are 2 plain plank
doorways to the loading hatches and 3 horizontal sliding sash windows, all
C19. In the double gable west end at first floor level a similar loading
hatch doorway to left (complete with sack hoist) and similar window to right
over a wide c-art entrance. Hop kilns are circular in section with cogged
brick eaves cornice. One of the kilns (to south fo the stowage) is missing
its roof but the other 5 have tall conical roofs with cowls.

Interior: Has plain but sturdy carpentry.

This impressive oasthouse forms part of an attractive group with medieval
Tatlingbury Farmhouse (q.v.) and its C17 barn (q.v.).
