ONE of Dunmow's most treasured and historic buildings moved into the digital age on Friday.
The Maltings, on Mill Lane, was officially relaunched as trustees welcomed Essex Lord Lieutenant Lord Petre to try out new hi-tech broadband systems enabling the restored building to move with the times and become a real hotbed for business conferences and functions.
Chairman of Trustees Barbara Ball proudly spoke to the assembled dignitaries and press about how much work the trustees and volunteers had put into the building since they completed the restoration in 2000.
The Maltings has won many awards in the past for its revamp, from a rundown barley mill to a museum and functions centre, and has been included on the prestigious European route of Industrial Heritage.
