Full Description

Langwith Maltings, Grade II, dated 1876 with some 20th century alterations. Constructed for W & S Birkitt. Red brick in English Bond with yellow brick dressings. An elongated range of 27 x 5 bays under a double roof but with transverse roofs over the north end and over the mid-range kilns; a barley kiln projects from the north-west corner. Germinating floors occupy 13 bays to left. The kiln interior has been altered. Germinating floors are tiled and divided into 3 main aisles, each served by a steeping pit at the north end and a kiln to the south. The upper floors are supported on cast-iron columns. The Malt Kilns have ground-floor furnaces which heat stones in a mid-floor chamber beneath the kiln floors - the original pierced tiles now replaced by wire grills. A good example of a mid-sized maltings which clearly expresses the processes involved. (1) The building was subject to vandalism in the 1990s, resulting in a partial collapse. Listed Building Consent was therefore granted for demoliton on July 4 1997, and the building was subsequently demolished. (2)
