Louth Malt Kiln

During last year, the Malt Kiln in Louth was demolished and the local museum held a small exhibition charting the the site's history. I paid the museum a visit while the exhibtion was on and thought I should share a few pics.

Along with much information pinned to display boards about the Kiln and the Malting process there was a superb scale model of the Malt Kiln built by an ex-employee. The model was opened out to show the internal structure of the Kiln along with supporting information about each area.

I took a few photos of the model before I walked around the table recording the video below.

One of the photographs, on display, showed part of the orginal malt kiln that was burnt down during the second world war along with another very grainy photo of showing more of the original kiln.

I'd be happy to send the still photographs of the model to anyone who is interested in building a model of Louth Station that would include all or part of the Malt Kiln.
