sleaford maltings | between a rock and a hard place

The second, and final floor, of the Green Barley Store was mostly stripped. A lone shelving stack stood in one corner of the room but we didn’t take a closer look due to the piles of pigeon muck which covered the entire floor.

There was an impressive double door which opened into a corridor which travelled south. This piqued our interest as it provided an alternative route across the top of the Barley Kiln and meant we wouldn’t have to double back down to the ground floor.

This turned out to be a potentially stupid decision.
