Lichfield Maltings is located in Lichfield, Staffordshire. It is grade II listed and sits derelict awaiting redevelopment.

The Wolverhampton and Dudley Breweries was formed in1890 as a public company when three local breweries merged. This company grew to become one of the largest independent regional brewers. The maltings were built in 1891 to the designs of George Scamell from Westminster.

The Wolverhampton and Dudley Breweries were floated on the stockechange in 1964.

In the 1970's the building was extended with modern silos added to the end of the building which include twenty 65 tonne storage bins and each is numbered.

Other breweries were acquired such as the Mansfield and Camerons Breweries. Marston's were acquired in 1999. Pubmaster made a hostile bid in 2001. Because of this, the company closed the Mansfield Brewery and relocated production to Wolverhampton.

The company acquired Jennings Brewery in 2005 and two years later they also acquired the Ringwood Brewery. In 2007 the company name changed to Marston's plc.
