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 steeping-house. 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.
