Ditherington Mill in Shrewsbury is one of the great monuments to the British Industrial Revolution. Built in 1796-1800, the Spinning Mill is recognized as the world's first iron-framed fireproof building. This study, illustrated with photographs, plans and reproductions, tells the story of the Mill through its life as a linen factory, then as a maltings, and shows how it was linked to the developments in engineering, the textile industry and business practices that were driving the nation's economy forward.
