The quaint twisting lanes and charming buildings of Broseley hardly bear just witness to the town’s historical significance. This is the original town of the Shropshire coalfield and industrial revolution. It is the area where the first commercial Watt blowing engine was erected, the first iron boat built, most of the country’s clay pipes made and one of the world’s first flanged wheel railways ran. It is not the surviving industrial monuments that pay homage to these achievements and the people involved in them. It is simply the surviving picturesque houses, curious workshops, and the whimsical tracks and mounds in the landscape that reflect the casual way in which industry flourished within this modest community.
Broseley is in the County of Shropshire and is located south of the River Severn near Ironbridge. It is 7 miles from Telford and 35 miles North West of Birmingham.
