Museum of the Gorge

The Museum of the Gorge was originally built as a warehouse for the Coalbrookdale Company in 1838 in a picturesque gothic style and was linked by horse-drawn plateway to the furnaces up the valley in Coalbrookdale. Iron products were stored here prior to shipment down the River Severn and onto the markets of the world. It later became a mineral water bottling plant and then a garage.

    He Cherie, I see you have been to the Ironbridge. It was a dreary day when we were there but still very interesting. I would like to go back sometime when the weather is a little warmer. Great pics you have taken.

    I remember visiting there when we stayed in the Black country. I just love buildings with a Gothic feel.

    It wonderful how an ordinary building was given the privilege of having such a grand structure.
