The Malt Kiln to be demolished

January 2004

The giant crane
The Malt Kiln has dominated the skyline of the eastern end of Louth for many years. Some people consider it to be an eyesore, but for others it was a valuable source of jobs. In January 2004 its destruction began. Unfortunately it was not a good candidate for dynamiting, so this process will take several months.

A giant crane was used to begin the demolition of the Malt Kiln.
