It was at Ironbridge, Shropshire that first large scale production of cast iron was developed using a process pioneered by Abraham Darby. Items made in Ironbridge were shipped all over the world.

Here in 1779 the worlds first cast iron bridge was built spanning the River Severn – beautifully constructed, totally innovative – today the Ironbridge stands as a permanent reminder of our industrial past.

Ironbridge is regarded as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – sitting alongside The Taj Mahal, The Pyramids and The Grand Canyon – pretty important sites.
