    Sleaford Maltings - Sleaford - January 2011

    Visited with Andy & Zero81

    After our previous success at Lincoln County we also decided to visit here on our way home. A good few hours were spent, with primary focus around just two of the malting buildings and of course the water tower / power house.

    We also bumped into a few other explorers, I didn't get your names but if you're on here say hello. (Didn't find your torch, not sure if you heard me when I clocked you on the water tower).

    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.

    Associated with the main maltings buildings are the former Mess Rooms. In separate ownership are also the former Company Housing, Cart Shed, Stables, Weigh Office and other ancillary buildings.

    The building overlooks open countryside but it is physically very close to the centre of Sleaford, separated only by the railway line.

    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...
