Monument Trail Celebrates 50 Years of World Heritage Sites

Today, Monday 18 April, is the 50th anniversary of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We're marking this occasion with a family-friendly trail around some of the key monuments in the Ironbridge Gorge - designated as one of the UK's first World Heritage Sites in 1986.

The circular trail starts at Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron and highlights some of the most important monuments from this area's industrial heritage including the world-famous Iron Bridge.
