This superb example of an old iron framed building has been sat empty for many years with consultation after consultation and very little headway. The sooner it is fully restored and opened the better!

An amazing insight into local industry. There is a smallish visitor centre and you can walk round the outside of these huge buildings. We were lucky enough to get a tour of the inside but you don't get to see very much - just one part of the inside of the main mill.
The volunteer guide was ezxcellent and informative.
The visit took about an hour in total.
Lots of work going on to preserve these buildings - should improve over time.

The extent of information, both in breadth and depth, is absolutely stunning. The staff could not be more helpful. So if it's in depth research or general interest, this is the place to go.

A wonderful site with lots to take in. The new Visitor Centre is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Easter to October. You can arrange tours of the Mill for groups and sign up for the Newsletter to be kept informed via the website flaxmill-maltings.com . Lots of parking and friendly guides - 15 minutes from the town centre, and on a main bus route. I'l be going again!
