GV II*

Malt house, now used as store. Early-mid C17. Hammer-dressed stone, stone slate roof. 2 storeys. 7 bays, 150 metres in length. Quoins. Single-bay outshut to left and attached gabled kiln to right end. Tudor-arched doorway with chamfered surround to right of flight of 10 stone steps to 1st-floor doorway with tie-stone jambs at junction with outshut. To right of doorway two 2-light double-chamfered mullioned windows and, to 1st floor, a 2-light wooden mullioned window with diamond-set wooden bars. Rear: back-to-earth with taking-in door to 1st floor. Left-hand return has 3-light window with same above and basket-arched opening (blocked) to apex. Outshut to right, has 2-light window with small chamfered light above. Attached kiln house square-on-plan has quoins and doorway with deep lintel, partly-rendered gable and pantile roof with wooden louvre.

Interior: outshut houses large stone cistern. Malt house is a single vessel with heavy beams and chamfered purlins supporting a lime-ash floor. 1st-floor has fine king-post roof with stop-chamfered tie-beams, principals, rafters, single- angle struts and straight braces to a diamond-set ridge. 2 trusses replaced C18 with fish-bone king posts. Heavy chamfered beams over windows with wooden shutters in gable.

With the two barns (q.q.v.) it forms an impressive group and is likely to be contemporary. It is a very rare and unusually complete survival. The only other comparable malt house in the region is the Malt Kiln, Kirkless Park, Calderdale (q.v.).
