Flax mill visitor centre opens doors
A £2.3 million project to bring a Shropshire landmark back to life has reached a major milestone. Visitors to Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings can now explore a new state- of-the-art heritage centre and exhibition space, charting the history of the former flax mill and maltings over the centuries. The facilities also highlight the site’s importance as home to the world’s first iron-framed building – regarded as the ‘father’ of the modern skyscraper.
