Louth was voted Britains favourite Market town in 2012 by Countryfile and the Old Maltings Antique Centre is part of what makes this lovely town so special. The Antique Centre is housed in a very large two storey building that was built sometime between 1808 and 1834 and was once a malt kiln and warehouse brewery belonging to Benjamin Ryley. It was successfully converted to an antique centre over 40 years ago and it is now run as a co-operative by a friendly group of independent Antique dealers. Each of the dealers add to the wide variety of stock you will find here. As a co-operative the centre also donates thousands of pounds each year to local charities. Although you will find many beautiful antiques you will also find stylish vintage furniture as well as handbags, crystal glass and dinnerware, coats, rugs, sofas, art, books, model railways, and militaria. Unusual items such as sledges, antique bikes, chimney pots, cutlery and memorabilia are usually found here too.
