SANDWELL MB WESTERN ROAD SO 98 NE Langley 8/167 Langley Maltings 18.3.74 II Maltings. 1870. Brick with slate roofs. Comprises two parallel three- storey ranges of malting floors with six kilns at east end, facing Western Road. West facade faces Titford Canal. The gables of both ranges are of five bays separated by shallow buttresses with offsets. The windows have segmental heads. Between the two ranges is a four-storey two-bay kiln, with a blocked canal arm to each side of it. The gable now projects above the roof of the southern range, which was replaced by a roof of several shallower pitches following a fire in the 1920s. At the east end the three northern kilns have pyramid roofs of steep pitch. The southern kilns have roofs of shallower pitch. All retain their louvres except for the northern kiln of the southern range, which is disused. Interior: the malting floors are now concreted and are supported on three rows of iron columns: Formerly Showell's Maltings, the buildings are a prominent canalside landmark.
