2/267 Nos 1 and 2 Ploggs Hall Oast

II

Oasthouse, converted into 2 houses. Early/mid C19, converted circa 1980. Red brick with some burnt headers laid to Monk and Flemish bonds, front wall is timber-framed and clad with weatherboards. Peg-tile roof to the former stowage and the kilns have coated brick roofs. Plan: Originally a relatively large oasthouse facing east north east, say east. Stowage is roughly square in plan. It has parallel roofs and had an open arcade across the front. 4 hop kilns across the back and a fifth on the left (south) end. It is now converted to 2 similar houses divided from front to back. No 1 to right (south) and No 2 to left. The odd fifth kiln belongs to Ploggs Hall (q.v.). Former stowage is 2 storeys.

Exterior: Front first floor level has the original arrangement of 6 windows, 3 either side of a plain plank loading hatch door. Window like all the others around the house are C20 casements with no glazing bars. Originally a 6-bay arcade below still has open bays providing a central entrance porch to each house. Centre bays are garage now. Other windows in the side walls have segmental arch heads. Roofs are hipped both ends. Circular hop kilns with cogged brick cornices, tall conical roofs and cowls.

Interior: Has plain original carpentry detail including a roof of A-frame trusses with mortise, tenoned and pegged collars. No 1 still contains the hop press which has been moved to the ground floor.

This converted oast house forms a group with the nearby converted barn (q.v.) and Ploggs Hall (q.v.).
