Ironbridge Overview

Ironbridge is a town and has in it a bridge made of iron. The bridge is a National Historic Landmark and a public access monument. It was built with cast iron after a nearby smelter made it an economically feasible material to use. No eye witness accounts are known which describe the Iron Bridge being erected, so the method is a bit of a mystery. It is closed to vehicle traffic, but you can walk across to the Museum of the Gorge an exhibition housed in the original Tollhouse on the south side of the Bridge. This museum is free. There is a War memorial in the market square and the church on the south side of the river is a "Waterloo Church" type and it was built in 1835/6 using funds from the Church Building Act 1818. The tower has a three dial clock.
