Ditherington Flax Mill: Flax Warehouse, Shrewsbury - Shropshire (UA)

Built c1810 as part of the mill's expansion; the cast iron frame represents the rapid development of the use of this material in the first decade of the C19. Outline planning approval was secured for the whole site in 2010. Funding has been secured for the main spinning mill and the grade II listed malt kiln which adjoins this building. It will be repaired in a later phase.
