The Mill – opening 10 September 2022

Visit Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings and discover the building that changed skylines across the world forever. 

The Mill exhibition brings to life the story of this iconic landmark of the industrial revolution. 

With digital and hands-on activities for all ages, walk the floors where spinning machines whirred, flax flew and barley was processed for beer to brew. Discover the lives and stories of workers, engineers, soldiers and entrepreneurs who played their part in one of the greatest heritage transformations and regenerations of all time. 

From its pioneering beginnings paving the way for skylines across the world, to the campaign to save and repurpose it for future generations to enjoy, you too can now experience the incredible journey of the grandparent of skyscrapers. 

It’s not so run-of-the-mill.
