Maltings in England

Strategy for the Historic Industrial Environment Report No. 1

Today, few malthouses survive unaltered. The study of their buildings, often as they become subject to listed building applications or are re-developed as part of the general planning process has enabled a detailed understanding of the buildings and their development to be obtained.

This report will seek to characterise and assess the malting industry:

  • by providing a summary of its process and historical context;
  • by outlining the historical development and typology of its buildings and their distribution;
  • by establishing the known stock of surviving buildings of the industry by county;
  • by indicating the adequacy of protective designation of these buildings.
