Ironbridge is a World Heritage Site, and the birthplace of the Indutrial Revolution. The Iron Bridge itself was the first arched bridge in the world to be made of iron. It spans the River Severn and forms an important link between the communities situated both to the north and south of the river. On the northern bank adjacent to the bridge is the community of Ironbridge whilst immediately south of the bridge the slopes of the Gorge are covered in woodland. These woodlands are comprised of Benthall Edge Wood and Ladywood, both of which are managed by Severn Gorge Countryside Trust.

This panorama was commissioned by the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust.
