Ditherington Flax Mill


Under lock and key, Ditherington Flax Mill, a 15 minute walk from the centre of Shrewsbury, is the earliest iron-framed building in the world, and thus termed the ‘Godfather of skyscrapers’.

Needless to say, I was prevented from exploring on account of the military grade fencing, so was only able to capture shots from the fringe; this is my favourite.
