HADLOW HIGH STREET (north side) The Maltings,I and II 7/74 The description shall be amended to read TQ 63 49 HADLOW HIGH STREET 7/74 The Maltings, I and II 25.7.79 GV II Former maltings of the Hadlow Brewery. Built in 1859 and circa 1880s, converted to flats in 1988. Buff-coloured Flemish bond brick with bands of red brick and red brick dressings, former office front of yellow and red brick with limestone dressings; slate roof. Plan: 2 large buildings set adjacent to and at an angle to each other. Maltings I circa 1880s is end onto the street- on a rough north west - south east axis. Its front end is more architectural. 2 large square-plan drying kilns on the back end. Maltings II 1859 is on a more east west axis with 2 similar drying kilns on the west end. Both are 4 storeys with accommodation in the roofspace. Exterior: The gable-end wall of Maltings I onto the street has a symmetrical 3-window front in Romanesque style. It is yellow brick with decorative red brick dressings. 3 full height windows at ground floor level in round-headed arches under a stone continuous hoodmould centre window is larger and has a stone keystone. At first floor level a single light round-headed window flanked by similar 2-light windows under a continuous hoodmould. Similar 2-light window in the gable end and cogged brick eaves cornice. The left long side (to south west) is 12 bays (including the kiln) divided by brick pilasters and has a corbelled eaves cornice including cogged bricks. Other side is plainer with a 3-window wide bay projecting towards the rear; full height and gabled. It was formerly a loading bay. Eaves cornice this side includes brick dentil frieze. Windows in segmental head arches. Many are new, (that is to say from 1988) and others have been altered. They contain casements with no glazing bars. Large low-pitch gabled dormers from 1988. The former drying kilns have tall pyramid roofs surmounted by cowls. Maltings II is in the same style and has been converted in the same way. Interiors: Not inspected. The Maltings form part of a group of varied listed buildings on the western approach to Hadlow. They are large buildings and very important to the town and indeed to the area which is still a major producer of hops. ------------------------------------ HADLOW HIGH STREET (north side) TQ 63 49 7/74 The Maltings, I and II 25.7.79 GV II Former maltings of the Hadlow Brewery.
