Ironbridge Gorge

The River Severn and its tree-cloaked banks make an attractive backdrop to this cluster of villages; within a mile of the graceful span of the world's first iron bridge are fascinating museums exploring the area's industrial past and the reasons why it’s been described as the "cradle of the Industrial Revolution."
