Ironbridge Gorge Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The densely-wooded, mineral-rich Severn Gorge was the "birthplace of the Industrial Revolution". In 1709, Abraham Darby (1677-1717) was the first to use coke for smelting iron, replacing traditional charcoal. His experiments rapidly revolutionised the iron industry making the construction of buildings such as the Iron Bridge possible. A number of sites along the gorge now form an important industrial museum providing an insight into the industry ( Museum of Iron) and life in the gorge ( Blists Hill Open Air Museum, Colport China Museum).
