Looking up river from the Ironbridge

Ironbridge would have been a busy river port during the 18th and 19th centuries with numerous warehouses, lodgings and ale houses spread along its front.

 

Many of the original buildings remain, including the former Coalbrookdale Company warehouse built in 1842, which houses The Museum of the Gorge.
