The Malt House, Brindleyplace - A Birmingham Gem!

The Malt House, now a popular canalside pub, is a traditional building that was once an historic maltings and nail warehouse. 

As the name reflects, a brewery once stood near this spot. The pub itself is built into the shell of the Kingston Building, built in 1803 as a nail warehouse.

As you cross the small footbridge, look back and you can see the old warehouse frontage, with its high sashed windows. The remains of the loading bays can also be seen.

During the days when the canals were used as a major form of transport, many warehouses were built facing directly on to the canals with loading bays giving direct access to the barges.

In more recent times, Bill Clinton, former US President famously drank here during the G8 in 1998.
