North gables. Inner range ground floor has door beneath segmental arch. The 3 upper floors each with a window opening beneath similar arch, stay bars, the upper 2 openings are blocked. Outer range. Diocletian window to middle storey. Circular tie ends to 1st and 2nd floors.
Wherry Lane facade. 3 storeys. 4 doorways with late C20 doors, all but left door behind heavy boarded outer doors. Single window with stay bars to ground floor. 3 openings each to first and upper storeys. Ground floor to south end only also rendered. Southern end of building has late C20 ground floor openings; the ground floor also being rendered. Tall loading bay to centre, light below eaves, sash window with segmental head to far right, middle storey. South gable ground floor, remodelled, upper 3 floors each with loading bay. Yard facades inner range of several builds and possibly reduced in length with late C20 Fletton brick gable wall. No openings to outer range. Inner range has 3 upper slatted rectangular openings, upper storey loading bay. 3 lower openings to left and centre. Some blocked. 3 raking dormers. Additions to ground floor.
INTERIOR. Of eastern range (known as Range 6). Roof of softwood and clasped purlin construction with ridge piece. The tie beams have iron clamps connecting them to the wall plates and the tie beams of the adjoining range. Similar discrepancies in the brickwork of the east wall to those of the southern wall of Range 5 (q.v.) may again indicate the rebuilding in brick of an earlier, possibly timber-framed, wall. Massive timber floors in both ranges.
The range fronting Wherry Lane (known as range 7) was extended to south following the construction of the Wet Dock in 1840.
The ground floors are used as shops.
These former maltings form part of the exceptional group of buildings associated with Nos.80 and 80A Fore Street (q.v.).
