Baird’s Maltings was a malt house beside the canal.
Grain was soaked in water, then sprouted and dried to produce malt to make beer. At the top of the buildings opposite the towpath you can still see ‘Hugh Baird & Sons Maltsters’ painted in white on the end wall, beside the conical malt house chimney.
