Great Dunmow Maltings

Great Dunmow Maltings


Mill Lane,
Great Dunmow,


The Great Dunmow Maltings date from 1560 and retain much of the original malting infrastructure used to produce malt by hand throughout the building's active life of 400 years until closure in the late 1940s.
The building demonstrates superb examples of 16thC and 18thC architecture and building techniques of very high standards carried through to the recent restoration.

Beautifully and sympathetically restored Maltings with the Town Museum housed on the ground floor and descriptions of how the Maltings worked, on the top floor. Easy access by lift. Open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays 11.00am - 4.00pm. Cost £1.50 and £1 concessions. Ample parking nearby as the Maltings are situated in the heart of Great Dunmow, ancient Flitch Town.

The Maltings is a popular venue for private and business hire, conferences and exhibitions and is fully equipped with high-speed wi-fi and LCD screen facilities. It is also licenced for civil ceremonies and is an established venue for civil weddings and receptions.
