What is an Ironbridge Coracle?

Ironbridge Coracles have been made in the Gorge, long before the Ironbridge was built. They are traditionally bowl shaped, woven from ash laths, and then covered with calico and waterproofed.

Bitumen was used previously to waterproof the boats. Now we use a bitumen based paint.
