    This trip was originally powered by a walk in the sunshine, and a Gregg's Sausage roll... Although by the time I got there it was more along the lines of torrential rain and drenched clothes.

    Not to be put off, I found my way inside and had a nosey in the first couple of rooms before hearing footsteps on the floor above, followed by some heavy banging. Just as they went quiet, I thought it'd be a "great" idea to throw my lens cap across the wooden floor, which turned out to be rather loud. I let out a little "d'oh" and carried on.

    A bit more mooching and I soon discovered that there were quite a few workmen on site, working on things. So I had fun avoiding them, including some close shaves where I saw hi-vis coming and darted into a handily placed kiln.

    Some history;

    And some photos of the site from 2005 before demo started: http://www.breweryhistory.com/2005_W&Dmaltings/2005_LangleyPhotos1.htm

    It's a shame how much appears to have gone from looking at the photos above, but there's still plenty to see. And glad I did before it's too late, as the workmen seem to be closing in on the historic interior.

    It would have been rude of me not to do a little tidying up. Place was a state in parts. ;)
