5/208 Oasthouse west of Old Barn
- Farmhouse


Oasthouse. C19 origins, rebuilt after an early C20 fire and repaired after
damage caused by the 1987 hurricane. Flemish bond brick with peg-tile roofs.

Plan: adjoining rectangular blocks on a north south axis, the western block
with a cylindrical kiln at the north end.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical north elevation, facing the road. To the
left (east) is the gable end of the east stowage block with one ground and one
first floor early C10 9-pane window. The kiln, to the right, is cylindrical
and preserves its conical roof and cowl. It has one unglazed window on the
west side. The left (east) return of the east stowage block has a door to the
left and a matching first floor 9-pane window to the right; the rear elevation
has a loft door. The west stowage block has a large C20 doorway in the south
end. The west return has one first and one ground floor 9-pane window to the
right and a door and loft door to the left.

Interior: segmental arched doorways between the stowage blocks. The kiln
does not preserve its furnace.

The oasthouse is part of a farmstead group associated with the Old Barn Tea
House (q.v.). An advertisement for the tea house is painted on the north side
of the kiln in large letters 'Old Barn Tea House. Oceans of cream'.
