ABOUT THE MALTINGS
Records show that in 1819, Richard Thomas was the maltster and took an apprentice James Wellings, aged twelve. By 1841, the owner was George Hamer. In 1851 there were probably three maltster in Clun which was at that time a major market town in the area. By Edwardian times The Maltings was called 'Old Talbot' and run by Joe Luther. The building has three floors with an exterior stone staircase which enabled barley and water to be taken to the first floor where the perforations in the floor allowed heat from the kiln below to carry out the malting process.
