This year’s programme:  

Tuesday  27th July 2021   Bass Maltings from Construction to Dereliction,  presented by Nigel Ogden.

The Bass Maltings in Sleaford are a large group of eight disused malt houses originally owned by the Bass Brewery of Burton upon Trent.  Constructed between 1901 and 1907, the Maltings are the largest group of malt houses in England;  they have been designated Grade II* on the National Heritage List of England recognising them as “particularly important … of more than special interest.”
