Support us

The restoration of the Main Mill and Kiln at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings is currently taking place, supported by a £20.7 million grant thanks to National Lottery players through The National Lottery Heritage Fund. But not all the support needed to bring this special place back to life comes from grant-giving bodies.

The generosity of individuals and businesses, who make donations ranging from a few pounds to a few thousand pounds, are helping to make possible what once seemed an impossible task; the rescue, conservation and repurposing of the Flaxmill Maltings.

The amount needed to finish the Main Mill and Kiln restoration is £35,000.

Every penny counts, so please donate to The Historic England Foundation and help us open the doors to the Flaxmill Maltings and welcome people back to site once again.

Equally as important as donations is the giving of time through volunteering. The volunteers of the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings have dedicated over 17,000 hours of their time to bring the story of this special place and its people to life since 2010.

The Friends need new volunteers to join their team, so if you have some spare time and want to get involved then head to the volunteer page to find out more. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has played a part in rescuing this internationally significant site so far. Every penny donated and every hour given makes a real difference.
