Langley Maltings in Sandwell on 2018 Top 10 Endangered Buildings list

Langley Maltings, Sandwell, West Midlands (Grade II-listed, 1870, architect unknown)

Langley Maltings on the banks of the Titford Canal were saved from demolition in 2012 but with no current proposals for repair and reuse they have fallen into a very bad state. Built in 1870 as Showells Maltings, they were in use until 2006 but were victim of arson in 2009 which caused significant damage. The attractive design and prime location make them ideal for a development scheme; they just need the right developer. Pictures are here.

Christopher Costelloe, Director of the Victorian Society, said: “This is the first time in many years we have had two buildings from the West Midlands feature on the final top 10 list. Both these sites are in a very bad way and have been let down by those who should be their custodians. But there is still time for them to be regenerated and brought back into use as buildings the communities can be proud of.”
