Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings

Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings, Visitor Centre

The current Visitor Centre is now closed until the new visitor attraction in the Main Mill will open in Spring 2022. We look forward to seeing you then!

We are offering free guided walks almost every other Sunday, please sign up here: walks programme.

In the meantime, we continue giving bespoke virtual (and live) talks for groups, so please contact us for a talk about the history of the Mill, or watch our Heritage Open Day videos for more insights into the Friends, the site and the project.

Take a Virtual tour of the Main Mill

Given that the inside of the Mill is not open to the public due to the ongoing building works (though our Visitor Centre is open), we are pleased to offer an alternative way of exploring inside the building virtually. Follow the link to have a look at the where the project stood back in May 2019.

This incredible 3D construct was commissioned by Historic England and put together by SEEABLE Ltd, a Shropshire based AR & immersive 3D Agency.
