Malthouse, Kirklees Home Farm, Clifton
This 17C building is a rare survival, and is Grade 1 listed. It has three storeys and an attic, but the ceiling height is very low, as the object was to provide as large an area as possible for the processing of the grain and three floors were put into a building that would only have had two if it were a house. This has prevented the building from being converted to another use, and it is a credit to the Arymitage family that it has been preserved. The upper floors are made of lime-ash floor laid on rushes or lathes, and there is an orange Plimsoll line running round the building under the windows to indicate the maximum floor loadings.
