GV II*

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 end. 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. (Victoria County History: Gloucestershire: London: 1968-: 144).
