The Malt Cross was designed by Architect Edwin Hill and constructed by builder Charles Weldon in 1877. This beautiful example of Victorian architectural innovation is now one of the last remaining music halls of its kind in the country and the only one to feature a glass roof. The original architectural drawings for the site are held in the Nottinghamshire Archives who have given us permission to use these images.
