    Default Bass maltings - Sleaford.

    Visited more times than i can remember this one as it's only an hours drive from me :

    History lifted 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.

    Really like this!
    The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.

    Those are fantasically clear and sharp pics, I didn't like the place, not because there was nothing to see but because I go a vibe from it.....

    It's well worth visiting though. Very nice indeed.
