Broseley is to be found in Shropshire and despite its setting today it was not always this picturesque. It was in the17th century a thriving industrial area and then in the 18th and 19th centuries it grew as a major centre for coal mining, iron manufacture earthenware and possibly the manufacture of glass products although there is very little evidence remaining. It had close links with Coalbrookdale on the opposite side of the River Severn and in 1779 the world famous Iron Bridge was built to link these two settlements and the town of Ironbridge was created. Originally a Saxon clearance within the Royal Forests covering most of Ironbridge Gorge, today the twisting country lanes and old buildings provide a rural haven from the towns industrial past. The town centre has a number of local and traditional shops but the inherent character of the village is in the mix of its architecture spanning some three centuries. From the 17th century there still exists the “Jitties” – an irregular network of lanes and enclosed footpaths – these were once in danger of being lost but today have been restored under a conservation programme to provide an insight of the original town layout. Today this pretty little village with its wealth of history still attracts visitors from all over.
