Is Ironbridge a nice place to live?

The World Heritage Site Ironbridge is a large village on the River Severn near Telford, Shropshire. In 1779 the world's first iron bridge was erected in the village, which marked a turning point in English design and engineering. Now, this cultural landmark makes Ironbridge a fantastic tourist destination.

Although known worldwide as the birthplace of the industrial revolution, most of the factories are long gone and the natural beauty of the Gorge has been restored. The gorge is now a maze of footpaths, bridleways, and country lanes.
