Don Donovan's World - Oast House, Elllendale, Tasmania

Ramblings of a much published New Zealand author - 27 October 2012

Leaves From My Sketchbooks. 69. Oast House, Elllendale, Tasmania

Brewing must be a big business in Tasmania because there are oast houses (hop drying kilns) everywhere in the midlands. As I sat on a folding stool painting this one I wondered whether it might tumble down before I finished! This is dilapidation on a grand scale.

I have a feeling that this structure burned to the ground or fell to pieces in later years.
