Ironbridge
The world's first cast iron bridge was built across the River Severn in 1779, providing a link between the wharfage below the town of Madeley, and Broseley, south of the river. In the 1780s a settlement was established north of the bridge, with a market square and asscociated buildings, and a hotel - The Tontine. On the hillside above, St Luke's Church was built in 1836.
Ironworking and a wide variety of other industries developed in the district from the late 17th century. In 1986 the Ironbridge Gorge area was designated a
UNESCO World Heritage Site and is now a major tourist destination.   View from the west.
