……Ware with its good river and road routes to London and its proximity to Hertfordshire barley led it to become the centre of the malting industry in the 18th and 19th centuries. On this map are identified at least 25 malthouses/maltkilns by which time (1898) the malting industry in Ware had passed its peak.
