Situated just outside Shrewsbury town centre, the internationally important Flaxmill Maltings site reflects a time when Shropshire led the way in engineering. The site is home to eight special buildings each with a unique story to tell, including the 1797 Main Mill which is the grandparent of skyscrapers.
This remarkable piece of the industrial revolution is being restored, and when open in 2022 will be a place where you can visit, work, eat and learn.
We can’t wait to share the stories of this amazing place and its people when the new visitor experience opens next year.
Did you know that the flax plant has a beautiful blue flower?
