Malthouse. 1861, by CR Crickmay. English bond red brickwork,
rendering, painted horizontal boarding, slate or
asbestos-cement slate roofs.
PLAN: in 4 units, the malt stove faces Spring Street, and is
backed, on a long axis, by the kilns, the malthouse, and the
EXTERIOR: the malt stove, in 2 storeys, has a broad gable to
the street, and a short return to Newton's Road. The upper
floor is in horizontal boarding, with rendering below. In the
gable a large loading door is flanked by small 2-light
casements; at ground floor is a central plank door flanked by
2 lights, boarded over at time of survey. The return wall has
one 2-light casement.
Immediately behind are the 2 kilns with steep hipped roofs in
asbestos-cement slate, linked by a platform carrying conical
metal vents. A small light to each kiln at high level. The
long malting floors are under a broad, low-pitched gabled roof
on 12 bays of blind arcading brickwork, with a series of 12
arches to a plinth stepped to the rise in the ground level to
the SE; bays 1-8 are in 2 storeys, and 9-12, one storey.
The even-numbered bays have segmental-headed openings with a
central light and boarded shutters, in heavy frames, at 2
levels; bays 1, 3, 7 & 9 are plain. Bay 5 has a pair of doors
to a segmental head, and 11 has an inserted loading door
breaking through the head of the arch. The end unit is
cross-gabled, with brick ground floor and horizontal boarded
first floor on timber-framing. Ground floor has a loading door
to a concrete platform.
INTERIOR: the kilns and much equipment of c1900 remain: kiln
drying floors, flat-bottomed steep and evidence for couch
frame. The timber malting floors were asphalted in the 1950s.
The building is part of an outstanding group of brewery
structures grouped around the Hope Square area, and no longer
used for their original purposes. An early example of an
architect-designed maltings, by a notable local architect.
