Report - Plough Maltings - Burton Upon Trent - June 2013


Got Epic?

I noticed this place while driving through Burton last year but didn't recognize it. It had some people on site at the time so we couldnt get too close but it was obviously a very nice building. After a bit of research i realized Turkey had been in there about 5 years ago but other then that i couldnt really find many references to it online. Especially not from explorers which i found really surprising! Recently we returned and luckly no one was around this time so we had free run of most of the site.

The Maltings itself is great, still in very good condition with alot of original signs, a nice tower and that all important tiled floor still in situe! At the front of site there is also a number of ancillary buildings. I think originally some of these would probably have been offices but at some point they had been converted to housing. They were in a bad way internally but made for an interesting addition to our mooch!

These maltings are notable as an example of the
structure built to house box drums which turned the grain as it germinated. Although
the equipment has been removed, the pattern of fenestration reflects the former use of
the building with many more windows on the northern side, since ventilation as required
for the traditional type of malting floor was not necessary.
Maybe you should go! :rolleyes:
