Appraisal

Representing an important element of the early to mid nineteenth-century commercial or industrial legacy of Wexford Town, a middle-size malthouse forming part of a self-contained ensemble (with 15501019, 115 - 116) retains the functional compositional attributes together with some of the historic fabric, thus contributing positively to the streetscape character of Peter Street (Gibson Street).
