    Visited with Tcake and Thestig , intel from Bugsuperstar and Nic81

    Construction began in 1949 and replaced the old maltings, which were built around 1870 and destroyed by German bombs in 1940.
    The new site had to be where its predecessor stood to qualify for war compensation, It took two years to finish the project, with post-war cement rationing slowing down the process.

    The production section was finished for malting to begin in 1952.The interior was an extraordinary honeycomb of 96 eight foot square, 90ft high storage chambers for barley and malt.

    Dalgety's had taken over ABM in 1972 but Paul's Malt became the new owners in 1987. Their plans to expand production by building three huge new silos were refused in 1989 by East Lindsey District Council and on appeal, following bitter opposition from the Civic Trust and conservation minded councillors

    Louth was producing 30,000 tonnes a year. In the late 1990s Paul's invested 30m in a new plant at Bury St Edmunds which increased introduction by 100,000 tonnes.

    Not sure on closing date exactly tho
