Ironbridge Gorge is famous for the eponymous bridge - the first iron bridge in the world - and there's plenty more to see. This region was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution and the relics of this bygone age are all around, including the old kilns, furnaces and mine works which once filled the valley with smoke. It's a much more pleasant place these days, but the shadows of history are never far away.
Ironbridge is easily reached by buses from many towns in Shropshire.
