The Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron

Explore the site and the remains of the water powered blast furnace where Abraham Darby I perfected the smelting of iron with coke instead of charcoal. It was the secret that helped make iron the essential material of the Industrial Revolution. 
In the Great Warehouse models, films and original artefacts bring to life the revolutionary techniques that made Coalbrookdale the most famous ironworks in the world.  See the versatility of cast iron and marvel at the great skill of the Coalbrookdale craftsmen in the fabulous display of domestic and decorative ironwork.
A large gift shop sells a range of cast-iron goods and souvenirs alongside a café serving a selection of light refreshments.
