    Default Bass Maltings, Sleaford, January 2011

    After the successful morning at Lincoln County Hospital and with a Burger King (XL Bacon Double Cheese burger fans) sitting nicely in my stomach ZerO81, hiddenshadow and myself headed over to Sleaford and visited the bass maltings.

    History taken from the web...

    The Maltings is a Grade II* listed complex built between 1901 and 1907 that consists of nine parallel ranges. The central block with its engine house and water tower is flanked by six-storey malthouses on either side containing the Steeps, Kilns and Granaries. It has a total floor space of 500,000 square feet, and occupies a site of 13.3 acres with a frontage almost 1,000 ft long. Internally there is a substantial amount of surviving machinery and fittings relating to the maltings process.

    Maltings operations ceased in 1959 and the buildings were subsequently used for poultry farming and vegetable processing. They are now all empty.

    An application in 1982 to demolish the Maltings was refused at appeal in 1984.

    I really need to stop visiting this place. Every time I do it makes me cry because I'm living in the wrong part of Britain for this stuff.
