A project to redevelop a historical flax mill is to be revised, English Heritage has said.

The Ditherington Flax Mill in Shrewsbury was awarded a £12.8m lottery grant in 2013, as well as £6.6m in European funding.

Work to redevelop the site was due to start in early 2014, but delays led to English Heritage taking over the project from Shropshire Council.

English Heritage said it was working on a "revised masterplan" for the site.

A representative said English Heritage would be in a position to release more details on the plans "within the next few months".

English Heritage bought the derelict buildings in 2005.

Its plans include turning the main Grade I-listed mill building into offices and exhibition space.
