Description

Attached five-bay three-storey malthouse, c.1825. Reroofed, c.1950. Now disused.

Random rubble stone walls with red brick quoins to corners.

Set back from line of street.

Appraisal

Exhibiting a traditional construction in unrefined local stone with red brick dressings producing an appealing visual palette, a modest-scale malthouse contributes significantly to the group and setting values of a self-contained ensemble (with 15505018 - 19, 115) representing an important element of the commercial or industrial legacy of Wexford Town.
