Opening 10 September 2022

We’re bringing Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings back to life so everyone can enjoy it.

A new exhibition on the ground floor of the Main Mill tells the story of this unique survivor of the Industrial Revolution, the building that changed skylines across the world forever.

Turned Wood Café will offer a delicious range of vegetarian and plant-based meals and snacks as well as hot and cold drinks including special house blend coffee. Our new Shop will feature a selection of unique and artisan, locally-sourced products including souvenirs, homeware and gifts.

All the information you need to plan your visit is here, including: opening days and times, ticket prices, how to get here and further details on accessibility.


As a volunteer you will be part of a friendly team of people who share a passion for this wonderful site and its stories.
