Listing Text

HADLOW TONBRIDGE ROAD
TQ 64 NW
6/110 Faulkners Oast (formerly listed as
11.5.73 Oasthouses and Granary at
Faulkner's Farm)

II

Oasthouse. Mid/late C19, converted to 2 dwellings circa 1973. Flemish bond
red brick; the main block (the former stowage) has a slate roof, the hop kilns
have peg-tile roofs.

Plan: Relatively large oasthouse built on its own. The stowage is on an east
west axis with 3 hop kilns on each long side. 3 storeys.

Exterior: Each end of the main block/former stowage has a wide bay filled
with timber framing, weatherboarded with C20 windows. Presumably these
contained loading bays and hatches originally. Original windows round the
rest of the building (including the hop kilns) have low segmental brick
arches. The inserted ones have flat arches. All contain circa 1973 casements
without glazing bars. The stowage roof is hipped both ends. The hop kilns
have tall conical roofs surmounted by cowls.

Interior: Has plain C19 carpentry where exposed. Roof not inspected.

This is a particularly good oasthouse in an important hop-growing area.
