“Iconic and of international importance!”

Ditherington Flax Mill
Reviewed 8 January 2018

Love this place! Not only of interest to people who appreciate industrial architecture (first iron framed building - forerunner to the skyscraper and under major redevelopment); but to those interested in social history. Personally my favourite place in Shrewsbury for both these reasons but also because my family lived and worked there. Enthusiastic volunteers have a wealth of knowledge to share with visitors, young and old.

Very interesting piece of history, especially in the light of 9/11 twin towers disaster. If you do not understand this, then you need to take a visit. The attraction is still in its early days and should improve over the years, with the greater investment promised.

A bit bias as I volunteer here but have meant to write a review for a year now! Another state in the work is now commencing so visiting the site has limitations. Will be wonderful when it is fully open for visits but a few years to go. Nevertheless do come and see what is going on to bring this building back to life. Volunteers run the visitors' centre and limited tours are available with booking in advance. Also look out for open weekends (one was May 2017 and hopefully one in Sept)

We tried to visit on a Saturday afternoon. The website said it would be open for visits but it was not. I suggest you phone before you plan to travel
