Ironbridge Gorge and Coalbrookdale

Fascinating and unique series of ten museums and monuments celebrating the Industrial Revolution, including Blists Hill Victorian Town and the world's first cast iron bridge (1779). Includes the role of religion, with reference to the ministry of John Fletcher, vicar of Madeley.

Fletcher's ministry was outstanding for its preaching, with and for John Wesley, his pastoral work, and his theological writing, particularly in support Arminianism – the belief that the opportunity to freely
choose or reject salvation through Jesus Christ is available to everyone.

Annual 'Passport' ticket to all ten sites (prices valid until 18 March 2018): Adult 25; 60+ 20; Child 15. Family tickets and tickets to individual sites also available. See for current prices.
