IRONBRIDGE by John Dalkin

Currently unavailable for purchase


The world’s first cast iron bridge was built over the River Severn at Coalbrookdale (England).
The area around Ironbridge is described as the “Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution” because it is near a the place where Abraham Darby perfected the technique of smelting iron with coke, allowing much cheaper production of iron. The grandson of the first Abraham Darby, Abraham Darby III, built the famous bridge – originally designed by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard – to link the two areas. Construction began in 1779 and the bridge opened on New Year’s Day 1781.
