Flax mill vis­i­tor cen­tre opens doors

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

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.
