This Walter Macfarlane and Co imperial crown will be the crowning glory of a world-changing iron-framed flax spinning mill

I love this building. I worked as a community midwife in the Ditherington area during the late 1980s - the crown especially gave me great joy, when passing by during those busy days.

Shaun Coster 31st May 2019

I grew up in Shrewsbury and want to do my part to preserve a landmark that has been there my whole life and dominates the local skyline.

Rhayes 23rd May 2019

I am always delighted to support the maintenance of the heritage of the beautiful town of Shrewsbury.
