PLAN: two long rectangular ranges with a 3-window range block to the left and a single-storey curved range to the far left with blocked windows, a C20 garage door and a corrugated-iron roof. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. Left-hand block has no eaves band, quoins and window jambs are of rubblestone; ground-floor left-hand window, now blocked, has a rubblestone arch, other windows and a full-height gabled loading-bay have brick arches with keystones. Segmental arches without keystones to the central block, wide windows of 4 square panes to the top over 2 panes though most are now plate-glass, all with stop-chamfered arrises to the frames. Block to the inside left has 6 windows; the two hipped-roofed malt kiln blocks each have 3 windows; the central block has 11 windows to the first floor and 2 loading-bays; the slightly later block to the right has keystones to the segmental arches, no eaves band, 4 altered gabled loading bays and windows. Gabled left return has a semicircular arched recess with a bracket and pulley and C20 windows. INTERIOR: the working maltings, virtually unaltered, are also a museum and visitor centre. An exceptionally well-preserved interior, with original planked floors, 1900 concrete drying floors, cast-iron columns and steeping tanks, Jacob's ladder bucket elevator, barley screener, malt cleaner and four kilns formerly heated by coal delivered directly from the railway that runs along the rear of the building, gaslight fittings and some original stairs remain.
