Hi Goyo,
You've done it again, another wonderful capture with such interesting perspective. Did you you use HDR?

Default To tyro: Oast Houses

Thank you John & Rosemary

Hope you don't mind me replying to you jointly, as always really appreciate your comments and interest.

Gleaned this amount of information from various internet sources:

Only a handful of original cowled oast houses are still in use for drying hops. One example is at Scotney Farm, a National Trust owned property (not open to the public) producing hops for 'Scotney Ale'.

Today most hops are dried in modern ridge ventilated buildings

Many oast houses were demolished after the hop industry decline at the beginning of the 1900s, however there are estimated to be over of 3500 original cowl ventilated Oast Houses left standing in England, dating from the 1740's to the 1930's.

A lot have been converted into houses or museums like the one at Sissinghurst.

Thanks again.
