ditchingham maltings | there but for the grace of god

We soon found the first floor bridge which connected the maltings plant with the silk mill. It was a remarkably insubstantial construction, with flimsy metal framed floor and asbestos curved ceiling. It wasnít the safest of structures Iíve walked across.

A conveyor belt was also routed across the bridge. So materials were taken from silk mill to the maltings and visa-versa. Perhaps the separation of the functions of these buildings by the stream wasnít as clear cut as I originally thought.
