In November 2015 this new state-of-the-art Visitor Centre opened its doors for the first time. Housed in the renovated office and stables thanks to grants from Historic England and the ERDF it tells the story of the Flax Mill Maltings, the mill’s role in the industrial revolution and the pioneers who made it happen.
Discover more about:
Watch a short animated film which charts the history of the building and its people.
Listen to oral history recollections of people who worked at the Maltings and who were barracked there during the World War II.
The Visitor Centre also houses a meeting/learning room, with projector and interactive white board, and a study and research space.
In addition the funding has provided for the demolition of the South Silo and the creation of valuable public open space along with landscaping and much improved parking facilities.
