Oyster Bay House, Faversham  by suesmith

Oyster Bay House, Faversham

The Oyster Bay House on Faversham Creek in Kent was built in 1845 for use as a store for locally-picked hops awaiting shipping to London by sailing barge and actually had nothing to do with oysters.

The Strood to Faversham railway opened in 1858, with a branch to Faversham Creek in 1860 and this may have led to a change in use for this building as it was later used by the United Fertiliser Company.
A lovely shot, great history. It would interesting to see this in B&W to match the back story.

Interesting to read of the history of this building! That bit on the top above the roofline apparently had a hoist in it! Similar to some historic buildings in Oamaru!
