Former malt house, now disused. Early to mid C19. Portland
stone ashlar, some rubble, brickwork, rendering, slate roofs.
PLAN: long malting floors on 2 storeys and in parallel ranges
are set back from the street; the rear wall is set into the
rising ground.
EXTERIOR: a gabled 2-storey range runs back at the right-hand
end, and at the left-hand end the return wing has 2 square
kilns with steep-pitched conical roofs and lofty central metal
flues, plus a lower wing with hipped outer end, which is
connected by a footbridge to the rear of the warehouse at No.7
Hope Street (qv).
EXTERIOR: 2-storey main maltings have 7 windows, 4-pane over a
timber panel, with wood lintel and sill. Far left, adjoining
the kilns is a flight of steps to a plank door at the upper
level. The back wall is in rubble, with the upper part of
windows in brick dressings just visible above raised ground
level. The gabled wing has a loading bay in the gable under a
gabled hoist, and a plank door on a flight of concrete steps;
the return wall is rendered. To the left, the kiln has one
small 6-pane casement at the upper level, and the wing to the
left has a rendered first floor with loading bay, with plank
doors and small lights, all to brick dressings with haunched
segmental heads at ground floor.
INTERIOR: kiln drying floors, flat-bottomed steep and evidence
of couch frame.
A good example of a pre-railway era maltings in the local
vernacular style. Part of an outstanding group of malthouses
centred on the Hope Square area.
