How to donate

Donations large and small have played an important part in bringing this site back to life and they will continue to be important as we build a sustainable future for this internationally recognised heritage site.

There are three ways you can support Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings: 

  • Donating to the restoration and upkeep of the historic buildings through The Historic England Foundation
  • Becoming a Founding Patron
  • Donating to the work of the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings

Historic England Foundation

If you would like to support the restoration and conservation of the historic buildings on site, you can do this by donating to The Historic England Foundation.

The foundation still has a fundraising target of £35,000 towards the Main Mill and Kiln restoration project, so every penny really does help.
