Ironbridge Things to Do: 45 reviews and 107 photos
Here, alongside long-abandoned factories, is a restored Victorian-era town which serves as an open-air, living history museum. It has both tourist sights and authentic remnants of the Industrial Revolution. Of particular interest is a replica of the world's first steam locomotive, which was built here in Coalbrookdale for Richard Trevithick in 1803. Another unusual piece of work is the local parish church, constructed of corrugated iron.
