“Research for a better viewing”

Ditherington Flax Mill
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The building is currently under construction so there is limited viewing.

To make for better understanding of the building, perhaps read up about it before viewing.

Interested to see how this develops!

We expected the first iron framed building to be in better shape than this. It is derelict and you can’t actually tour the building. Perhaps they will make repairs so that people can enjoy the history of this building.

Fascinating old building and informative guides. Hope that the funding for the next stage is forthcoming.

A very historic building and the first ' Skyscraper ' in the world. Located in the Industrial north of Shrewsbury, It was nice to have a look inside but as yet very little to really grab the interest of a visitor. Needs great sympathetic investment and repair, do hope the local Council does not ruin this already at risk landmark.
