The Old Maltings Antique Centre is located on Aswell Street, Louth, Lincolnshire. The building was once a malt kiln and brewery belonging to Benjamin Ryley who was also a dealer in fresh hops. The grain was malted on the first floor and the brewing vats were at the rear on the ground floor where ale was brewed for local Louth pubs. During Victorian times Louth had over 52 pubs – one for each week of the year!
Our Antique Centre was founded over 35 years ago and is uniquly now run as a co-operative by its dealers. As the Old Maltings Antique Centre is home to a large group of independent dealers, we can offer you a choice of antiques including collectables, homewares, jewellery and period furniture, which can be traditional, quirky or even eccentric but never dull – and all at very affordable prices!
We recently appeared on the BBC One programme ‘Antiques Road Trip’ where Paul Laidlaw could be seen searching through our two floors of treasures. A very good day was had by all and he even made a handsome profit on one of his purchases!
Our dealers offer furniture restoration, cane or rush seating and we are happy to carry out house clearances, buy gold and silver and one off items. If you are thinking of selling something then just send us and email with your details and we will happily get back to you.
