NEW HOUSE OAST PHOTOGRAPHS

Here I am referring to the New Oast at New House Farm (not the old three kiln oast by New House Farm House which was converted to a grain store).

This photo shows the oast workers taking the dried hops out of the kiln after drying.  These hops would be left to cool on the open floor of the oast before pressing.
