The Maltster's Arms, Harbertonford. Stone house, part of a larger house, once the residence of a brewer. Over the door is a ring for tethering horses. Behind the house is a delapidated building where large scale brewing was carried out. A big water wheel, which now supplies water for the use of the inn, was originally used for pumping the water for brewing. The malt house is still extant. Carts entered the yard by an archway, now the entrance to the inn.
