859-1/6/24 (North side)
04/03/52 Malthouse to rear of No.23
(Formerly Listed as:
(North side)


Workshop, former malthouse. C17. Square panel timber-framing,
brick nogging, tile roof.
Rectangular 4-bay building on 2 floors plus a malting floor in
the roof-space; one side is at the party boundary, and is
built up on the boundary wall. It is linked to the back of the
house with a wing which includes one deep beam at the street
The outer gable is framed, with a brick-nogged gable
containing 2 small lights, over a full-width small-pane range
of windows and a pair of doors at first floor. A further door
below, in brickwork. The party wall is in panel framing on a
brick ground floor incorporating two small lights.
INTERIOR: the ground floor is in 3 bays on a brick floor. Very
heavy transverse beams, approx 375mm square, to run-out stops,
and 2 longitudinal beams. Ladder stair at street end to first
floor with 2 transverse beams as below, plus 2 diagonals in
each bay. Good early board floor. The roof, in 4 bays, has 2
tenoned purlins, flush rafters, propped principals, and
collar. The floor is in boards covered by a thick lime-plaster
screed; the owner recalls retaining boards for grain along
both sides, but these have disappeared.
This outbuilding has been retained in use as a workshop, and
is consequently little altered and an early and most
significant survival.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the grain trade, and the associated industry
of malting, remained a significant part of the town's industry
until the decline of river-borne traffic in the C19. Great
quantities of malt were exported to Wales.
