Ditherington Flax Mill: Cross Building, Shrewsbury - Shropshire (UA)

Originally built in c1799, the cross building was rebuilt in c1812 after a fire. The cast iron frame represents the rapid development of the use of this material for fire-proofing in the first decade of the C19. Outline planning approval was secured for the whole site in 2010. Funding has been secured for the repair of the spinning mill. This building will be repaired in a later phase of the works,
