New visitor centre opens at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings

Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings is a unique and internationally important site, containing seven listed buildings including the first cast-iron framed building in the world. Historic England and its partners developed a project to conserve and bring back into use two historic buildings and create public realm space so a broad range of people can explore, learn, participate and enjoy the site’s unique and varied heritage.

Creative Good provided interpretation and design consultancy services for the scheme, which includes site welcome, orientation and wayfinding signage, indoor interpretation and exterior interpretation onto the site. The new visitor centre and selected outdoor areas of the site were opened to the public yesterday.

The BBC reported on the opening event here.
