The Park Oast House

mixed 007

As we approach autumn and harvest time, it seemed a good idea to reflect on The Oast House in the corner of Grosvenor and Hilbert Park. The park is given over to land for recreation and relaxing now, but two hundred years ago, all this was working farmland. We know there was a small hop field, but there must have been enough hops to make it worthwhile building and running an Oast House to dry them in.
