Photo of the Week – Week 11

The Oast House is generally associated with the south-east of England and are (or were) used as kilns for drying hops to use in the brewing of beer. There are some in several other places in this country and other countries like Australia, Belgium and Czech Republic. This particular one is in Faversham in Kent. Oasts have the tell-tale white top (kell) which pivots in the wind to allow the wind draw the hot air through the hops and out through the tops. Kent Oasts have the Invicta prancing horse – the symbol of Kent.

    • It is a nice looking place. The oasts usually are. This is right beside a hop farm so it is still in use from the looks of it
