Bass Maltings, off Mareham Lane, Sleaford, Lincolnshire

Some of the most noteworthy maltings in the UK are to be found at Sleaford, next to the railway line. Here are eight brick built multi-storey maltings, designed by A Couchman for Bass. Construction began in 1892 but work was not completed until 1905. The site also has a central engine house to provide power in the maltings. The location of the maltings at Sleaford was ideal because it was half way between the barley growing lands of East Anglia and Bass's Brewery at Burton-upon-Trent. The site had its own railway sidings.
