Malt house approx. 15m
2/8 south-west of
Blacker Hall Farmhouse


Malt house, now used as store. Early-mid C17. Hammer-dressed stone, stone
slate roof. 2 storeys. 7 bays, 150 metres in length. Quoins. Single-bay
outshut to left and attached gabled kiln to right end. Tudor-arched doorway
with chamfered surround to right of flight of 10 stone steps to 1st-floor
doorway with tie-stone jambs at junction with outshut. To right of doorway
two 2-light double-chamfered mullioned windows and, to 1st floor, a 2-light
wooden mullioned window with diamond-set wooden bars. Rear: back-to-earth
with taking-in door to 1st floor. Left-hand return has 3-light window with
same above and basket-arched opening (blocked) to apex. Outshut to right, has
2-light window with small chamfered light above. Attached kiln house square-on-plan
has quoins and doorway with deep lintel, partly-rendered gable and pantile roof
with wooden louvre.

Interior: outshut houses large stone cistern. Malt house is a single vessel with
heavy beams and chamfered purlins supporting a lime-ash floor. 1st-floor has
fine king-post roof with stop-chamfered tie-beams, principals, rafters, single-
angle struts and straight braces to a diamond-set ridge. 2 trusses replaced C18
with fish-bone king posts. Heavy chamfered beams over windows with wooden shutters
in gable.

With the two barns (q.q.v.) it forms an impressive group and is likely to be
contemporary. It is a very rare and unusually complete survival. The only other
comparable malt house in the region is the Malt Kiln, Kirkless Park, Calderdale (q.v.).
