Iron Bridge: Follow in the footsteps of millions of tourists who since 1779 have journeyed here to marvel at the world's first cast-iron bridge. Built by Abraham Darby III and now recognised as one of the great symbols of the Industrial Revolution, the remarkable structure still dominates the small town that bears its name. The secrets of how and why it was built are revealed in an exhibition housed in the original Tollhouse on the south side of the Bridge.
