Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, Shropshire
A day trip from Upper Heath Farm self catering country holiday cottage
A visit to the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site in Shropshire, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, is a great thing to do during your stay at Stable Cottage. Upper Heath Farm and stable cottage is located between Ludlow and Craven Arms, about a 40 minute drive from Ironbridge. Ironridge hosts ten marvellous museums which spread along the valley beside the River Severn, and entry into one can get you entry into all of them.
Journey back in time at Blists Hill and experience life as it was over 100 years ago through the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a recreated Victorian Town.
Investigate science and discover more about the power of technology at Enginuity, where you can test your reactions against the speed of a robot, generate power from water or pull a locomotive by hand.
At Jackfield Tile Museum you can see, touch and walk upon magnificent British tiles as you wander through the original trade showroom, fascinating galleries and period room settings.
Other museums at the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site include Coalport China Museum, Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron, Museum of The Gorge, Darby Houses, Tar Tunnel, The Iron Bridge & Tollhouse and Broseley Pipeworks.
