Ironbridge is a renowned and historic area nestling in The Severn Gorge which forms one of the most striking and distinctive landscapes in England, with a charming town centre adjoining the River Severn and the slopes of The Gorge combining a delightful mix of imposing, detached period residences mingling with charming cottages up the hillside. This remarkable area was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution and became world famous in 1779 when the world’s first iron bridge was constructed over the River Severn and from which the town derives its name. It is steeped in the industrial heritage of the area with local museums forming part of the World Heritage Site and is now recognised as a premier tourist area.
