Ca. mid-19th century pair of conjoined oasthouses with square kilns. Much altered in the 20th century, including the addition of applied timbers to the façade, an awkward central chimney stack, inappropriate modern windows and a jumble of boundary treatments. Clay tile roof and cowls have been retained.
