Artist's Description

Ironbridge is a British icon, a landmark, attracting many tourists. The man who built it was Abraham Darby; the same man who pioneered a process of using coke instead of coal to smelt iron ore; this process gave a much higher temperature enabling the production of cast iron, which the bridge itself is made of. It was also a much cheaper process.
It was the world’s first iron bridge; erected over the River Severn in 1779.

Location: Ironbridge, Shropshire, England
