Also Known As: 7, WHERRY QUAY
Public house, formerly kiln part of maltings. Late C18/early C19 with earlier origins and later alterations. Red brick with pantile roof. 2 storeys. Front to Wherry Quay has pair of glazed doors on both floors to left and 2 casements over low access door to right. Large kiln vent on roof. Left side has weatherboarded gable ends and is mainly blank. Right side adjoins the warehouse complex at 80 and 80A Fore Street (q.v.), in relation to which it is known as the 'kiln block'.
INTERIOR. Conversion has been made for present use but circular kiln dates from late C18 or early C19 when the complex was used as a maltings. Kiln has a furnace with two fire holes and a baffle constructed of metal framing with perforated tiles. The kiln floor is of perforated tiles while the kiln hood is of lath and plaster on a light metal frame suspended from the roof of the ceiling. There is evidence that the kiln was inserted into an existing building and this reinforces the suggestion that the conversion of the complex to a maltings caused much piecemeal rebuilding and some demolition.
This public house was formerly part of the warehouse complex at Nos. 80 and 80A Fore Street (q.v.) and forms part of that exceptional group of buildings.
