Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list:

SU 7039 & SU 7139
(South Side, Off)
2/110 The Maltings

Malthouse, now commercial premises. Probably mid C19; altered. Red brick in
Flemish bond,; wood shingle roof. One storey with loft, 6 x 11 internal bays.
Gabled entrance (north-east) elevation: various concrete-lintelled doors and
windows; one soldier-brick-arched window; loft loading door, now window.
Half-hipped gable with low eaves. Two malt-kiln louvres with pyramidal metal
caps, that on left tall and with battered wood-shingled sides. Rear: later
brick patching on left; later doors and windows. Returns: various small
windows with vertical glazing bars and lapped glass; other openings.
Interior: the front bay has the two kilns; the next 3 bays were floored
(mostly removed), and then an unfloored section. The internal structure is
unusual, having a complex timber framework of posts cross-beams, joists,
tie-beams, longitudinal beams, and multi-directional straight braces; joints
reinforced with metal straps and bolts; plank ridge-piece.

The Maltings appears on the 1870 O.S. Map; the 1840 Alton Tithe Map shows a
malthouse on the site although it is not possible to tell if it is the one
that exists today.
