The Sackhouse is situated next to the Maltings. It was where the sacks from the port and maltings process were woven and repaired two hundred years ago. As Phase 1 of the Maltings Project, the building has been converted into small office units, meeting facilities and further open plan community space available to hire.
The Sackhouse is a space dedicated to fostering the support and growth of local SMEs and start-up businesses and provide space for the community in Wells. The Sackhouse provides much needed affordable office and meeting facilities for the town, as well as a further area where the community can host events, talks, parties, exhibitions, training events and conferences.
