The industrial past of the Ironbridge Gorge has left it mark on the area in more ways than just the Ironbridge. Many types of industry thived here and the Trust looks after sixty historic structures from small retaining walls to brick arches, lime kilns to mine breathers and adit entrances. They are annually inspected by civil engineers from Telford & Wrekin Council. We maintain and repair the structures as and when it is needed. The Trust has spent over £250,000 in the last ten years conserving the industrial heritage of the Ironbridge Gorge.
