Broseley Pipe works (2 mile)
Broseley, two miles from the Ironbridge, was once home to one of the most prolific clay tobacco pipe making factories in Britain. Production came to an end in the 1950's when the works were abandoned and left untouched until reopened as a Museum in 1996. In the restoration little has been changed since the workers left. The Museum is a wonderfully preserved time capsule of an ancient local industry.
There is so much to do in Ironbridge. Listed below are a few examples and there is a well stocked information box in the property.
