Situated on the northern edge of Shrewsbury, the internationally-important Flaxmill Maltings site reflects a time when Shropshire led the way in engineering innovation.


The site comprises eight listed buildings, including the Main Mill, which was built in 1797 and, as the world's first iron-framed building, is the forerunner to all modern skyscrapers.
