Out building at Batemans

    It is interesting to see an oast house surmounted by a dove cot. An oast house is common enough inKent but as far as i am aware less so in Sussex.

      Is this where Bateman's beer is brewed?

      Well not in the oast house but probably next door. Oast houses wre for storing and drying out the grain I think.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Oast Houses, and we'd love to have this added to the group! Oast houses were used to dry hops and brewers paid more for hops grown in Kent.
