“Crumbling ruin needs saving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Could be a UNESCO world heritage site, its the first skyscaper EVER anywhere in the world!! Go there and lobby the council to help repair it, its a wreck and only accessible on special one off days but worth the trip when you can

“Old History.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

The Flaxmill has been and has much history to it and at present even though in talks to restore the area at present you see it as its been for more than a hundred of years and as a Shrewsbury habitant born and bred has lived with it for my lifetime.
