When George Gallard began to develop the Drove Area of the Stanford Estate in the mid-1870s one of the first buildings to be erected was this large maltings. Chapman & Co., who also owned the Black Lion Brewery, opened it in 1877. It changed hands many times, the last owners being Brickwood’s Breweries. Demolition had started when these photographs were taken on 2 April 1968.
