The Maltings was originally constructed in the 17th century and is officially listed as a Historic Monument by English Heritage. Vincent used the premises to make their famous racing bikes in the late 1940’s   In more recent time the building has been in a severe decline and required major structural improvements to ensure its future integrity and weather tightness.  ES Moss were commissioned to carry out various repairs including new oak beams and trusses, new lead flashing details, masonry, joinery repairs and roof repairs.  The works met with approval from all quarters and is the forerunner to extensive refurbishment in the coming year.  A quote from English Heritage below demonstrates the level of client satisfaction at completion.
