Museum of Iron

Recommended
The history of iron making and the heyday of the Coalbrookdale Company are relived in this museum. It is housed in a large warehouse with windows that have iron lintels. In 1851, the Coalbrookdale Company employed 4,000 men and children to produce 2,000 tonnes of iron a week. Turned into pillars, columns and other decorative elements, iron was used to build stations, bridges, chimneys and so on.
