Ironbridge and the Old Ice House in Shropshire

In the 18th Century, the River Severn was one of Britain's busiest waterways and as industry was growing quickly in Coalbrookdale, a bridge across the river became essential. The adjacent Ice House was just one of many local businesses that would benefit from the construction, as small boats were the only alternative way to reach their suppliers and customers.
