Louth's Malt Kiln - 'A Celebration of Louth’s Concrete Cathedral'

Exhibition at Louth Museum - 1st April to 25th April 2015

The early part of 2015 saw the demolition of Louth’s famous Malt Kiln and some in Louth would say that this has been long overdue. It was known by many as Louth’s Concrete Cathedral.

Louth Malt KilnThe Malt Kiln Exhibition at Louth Museum is a celebration in photographic form of when the Maltings was rebuilt after the Second World War and also of its heyday as one of the world’s largest Malt Kilns. The Exhibition will include a unique, highly detailed, model of the Malt Kiln which was constructed by the late John Hardy who had worked at the Maltings as the senior engineering manager. After his retirement, John worked for many years on the model, it is correct in all details and both the exterior and interior can be seen. It will give many an insight into the workings of the Louth Malt Kiln. You can read more about the exhibition here...
