The Industrial Revolution was an upsurge of innovation fuelled by coal, powered by steam and constructed in iron.
For the first time iron is out of the hands of the blacksmith and into vast foundries that smelt and cast iron and Cast Iron becomes the construction materiel of the age.
Coalbrookdale in Shropshire is the origin of metal working in the early Industrial Revolution.
The Revolution changed the way things were made and included going from hand production methods to machines, iron production processes, improved efficiency of water power, increasing use of steam power and the development of machine tools.
COAL & COKE replace wood and charcoal as prime source of fuel.
The Museum includes numerous power-related exhibits that will interest young and the not so young, with many working examples of various power sources, machinery, equipment and tools. View our introduction video here.
