Ironbridge Gorge

Ironbridge Gorge and Iron Bridge: The Ironbridge Gorge is located about 30 km northwest of Birmingham in the narrow Severn Valley. The Industrial Revolution in the 18th century had its roots in the Ironbridge Gorge. The Iron Bridge is spanning the River Severn. The Iron Bridge is the world's first bridge constructed of cast-iron. The bridge was designed by Thomas Pritchard and built by Abraham Darby III in 1779-1781. The Bedlam Furnaces were built at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the 1750s, it is likely that the Bedlam Furnaces were used to make parts of the Iron Bridge. The Iron Bridge was over-designed. Later bridges, such as those built by Thomas Telford, used much less cast iron. The Iron Bridge is accessible on foot only. The Iron Bridge is probably one of the most iconic images of Great Britain. The Ironbridge Gorge was declared an UNESCO World Heritage in 1986. World Heritage Art: Ironbridge Gorge
