Today I am exploring the Ironbridge Gorge with Lee Proudfoot, historian and guide, and in particular to wonder at the first iron bridge in the world.
The Iron Bridge is a bridge that crosses the River Severn, at Coalbrookdale, in Shropshire, England. Opened in 1781, it was the first major bridge in the world to be made of cast iron, and was greatly celebrated after construction owing to its use of the new material.
