Two hundred years ago the Industrial Revolution was born in the Heart of England and today the region is rich in fascinating places to visit, with living reminders of our Industrial Heritage.
Coalbrookdale and the Severn Gorge, site of ironworks at the very cradle of the Industrial Revolution, are now pleasant wooded valleys. Here you can see the world’s first iron bridge and visit museums and open air sites that bring its heritage to life.
We are proud to work with Lindum Heritage to provide short break tours exploring the Severn Gorge and the glorious Severn Valley.
Pioneers like Boulton and Watt produced the world’s first practical steam engines and Josiah Wedgewood established his famous pottery. Their vision created the manufacturing heartland of England.
An extensive canal network rapidly grew to transport goods and supplies for the new industries. Today it provides a leisurely way of seeing both town and country whilst a visit to the Heritage Railways in the region is a must for those who wish to recapture the days of steam.
