The New Coracle Shed contains a FREE exhibition telling the fascinating story of the coracle men of Ironbridge, their lives and humour.
The New coracle shed is where you can see the Coracle Stories exhibition.
The Ironbridge Coracle Trust rediscovered many of the tools and strange animated characters which had been in the old shed and have built this new shed to show them and tell the stories, often in the coracle men’s own words.
During the pandemic the New Coracle Shed is closed, but you can make a virtual visit with this film.
There is a replica of one of the witches. The real witch is in the glass shed, with a fox, tools and many mysterious objects. A real old curiosity shop!
There are also fascinating historic photos and films, many supplied by local people.
Local artists and craftspeople have been helping to tell the stories.
Many local people have volunteered their time to help with conservation of parts of our collection and other activities.
