Agricultural Museum

The Street, Brook
Ashford TN25 5PS

The museum at Brook forms part of an attractive and historic group of buildings consisting of Court Lodge farmhouse, with its medieval moated site, manorial barn and hop oast. The adjacent Church of St Mary is a fine example of Norman and Early English work. In the barn there are most of the items from when the horse was the power round the farm such as turnwrest ploughs, seed drills, reapers and wagons (click thumbnail on right). In the largely intact oast house are items associated with hops and other small items.
