Ironbridge Gorge in Coalbrookdale, recognised as a World Heritage Site, was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. The World’s first iron wheel, rails, steam locomotive and bridge were all made here.

Blists Hill Open Air Museum allows the visitor to experience the life and atmosphere of a working Victorian community. The cottage is typical of the rough dwellings erected by squatters on common land. In 1861 it housed a family of nine. The pigsty reflects the rural influences which persisted in this early industrial area.
