59 Market Place Malthouse

Market Place

Rear of 59 Market Place, former malthouse is located in the back garden of No. 59 and was separately listed Gd.II in 2009 after recording by the O.B.R and HA&HG. It consists of 2 bays; flint lower walls, supporting timber framing with brick noggin. The frame of a former kiln funnel survives in one bay, very probably used for drying hops rather than malting barley, as there are no malt floors for the processing of the barley attached, an absolute essential for the malting process.
