Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings
Our Vision is that:
The Flaxmill Maltings is brought back to life at the heart of the community.
The Flaxmill Maltings is a unique and internationally important site, containing seven
listed buildings including the first cast-iron framed building in the world along with the 3rd and 8th. Located in the heart of one of Shropshire’s most deprived communities, in 1985 the buildings became derelict and this important industrial heritage is ‘at risk’. The redevelopment will be the catalyst for the area’s wider regeneration and the site will once again become
a vitally important local, regional and national landmark.
The Friends have made the Flax Mill Maltings accessible so that organisations, groups and individuals can explore, learn, participate in and enjoy the unique and varied heritage.
We run guided tours including
our annual open weekends, which attract up to 2,500 visitors. Our thriving Arts Group deliver a range of community orientated initiatives including exhibitions and workshops. Our Archives and Research group explore the history of the buildings and the people connected with them. Our education team are developing
opportunities for formal and informal learning for all age ranges.
The Friends have also established a thriving Youth Activity Centre, Flaxivity. This provides up to 300 young people a week the opportunity to engage in range of activities including the use of our unique
indoor ramp facility.
Your financial support will ensure the Friends can continue to provide opportunities for all to engage with and be inspired by the Flax Mill Maltings.
