Ironbridge lays claim to being one of the birthplaces of the industrial revolution. in 1708 Abraham Darby started perfecting his technique of smelting iron with coke producing iron for much less. In 1781 the Iron Bridge was built here (where the picture is taken from). It was the first arch bridge to be built entirely from iron.
