Join us for a celebration of 'Astounding Inventions' at Coalbrookdale, the home of the inventor of the electric car, Thomas Parker!

Walk a living timeline of vehicular innovation; start at the vintage steam engine then progress through the petrol & diesel age before finishing with a modern electric vehicle.

Get hands on with our invention themed activities in the Covered Bays.

Explore new research by our Senior Curator, Georgina Grant, who's been looking through the Coalbrookdale Company's orders, as part of her Art Fund Headley Fellowship.
