3/29 Anchor Marine Stores
(malting and kiln of
Warwick's Anchor Brewery)


Maltings and kiln, now shop, offices and stores. c1850 of 2 builds.
Red/brown brick, English bond, gritstone ramp, grey slate roof. 3 storeys
with basement, approximately 3 bays to main range, with square 2-storey kiln
at south-east end. Main range: south-west side: main entrance on first
floor left, reached from stone loading platform, loading doors above.
Basement area reached through board doors to right. Small square windows,

Interior: main range: floors carried on cast-iron girders supported by
slender cast-iron columns manufactured by C Corcoran, 31 Mark Lane (possibly
Leeds). Kiln: floors missing; on first floor, wall to main range has large
doorway flanked by smaller openings, all with iron doors; similar small
openings, boarded up, on other 3 sides. Garage doors inserted into south-
east side mid C20. The malting process in this building involved the
spreading out of the wetted barley on one floor of the main range. The
barley was turned and ventilated for a few days before being gently dried in
the kiln. The kiln was composed of a ground-floor furnace room and a drying
room above, through which the warm air was drawn by the flue. The malted
barley was then transfered to the brewery. The building was used by Warwick
and Co's Anchor Brewery. New brewery buildings were constructed in 1856
immediately to the north-west of the maltings and a larger maltings was
constructed c1875 across the railway line to the north. The malting is
probably the oldest surviving building of its type in the county and forms a
group with the tower brewery (qv) and later kiln and maltings (qv).
