Thank you to our Funders

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the individuals, organisations, trusts and foundations who have played a part in rescuing this internationally recognised heritage site so far.  Without their generosity, Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings and all the stories that it brings might have been lost forever.
