(Almost) the Complete Archaeology of the Iron Bridge

Museum of The Gorge

Join Spencer Gavin Smith, the Museums' Archaeology and Monuments Officer, for a talk about the archaeological discoveries made during the £3.6 million English Heritage Iron Bridge Conservation Project, undertaken between October 2017 and January 2019.

This beautiful monument stands as one of the greatest symbols of where the Industrial Revolution started. Tourists have flocked here since 1779 to marvel at this extraordinary structure that dominates the small town that takes its name. In autumn 2017, English Heritage embarked on their largest ever conservation project, preserving the Iron Bridge for the future. The conservation work involved repairing cast iron elements, conserving the masonry, resurfacing the deck, and cleaning the entire structure and repainting in its original red-brown colour. 

In addition to the conservation project works, a programme of archaeology was undertaken, and revealed new information relating to the design, construction and maintenance of the Iron Bridge from the time of Abraham Darby III onwards, including how and where the original colour was identified on the structure.

6pm - doors open
6.30pm - Talk
7.45pm - Q&A

The talk will be in the Museum of the Gorge, Ironbridge. There is no charge for this talk but donations are welcome on the door. As this talk is likely to be popular we suggest booking your free ticket here to avoid disappointment.
