The Coracle Trail

The Old Coracle Shed and The New Coracle Shed are linked by a self-guided Interactive Coracle Trail along the Wharfage. 

Click the image above to open the Trail. It shows your location when you are in Ironbridge. Click the red spots to magically take you back in time to see Ironbridge in the heyday of the Coracle men.

Beside the Museum of the Gorge and Visitor Information Centre we have erected a magnificent sculpture in memory of all the coracle men (and women!) of Ironbridge.

The sculpture is based on a paper cutout made by local artist David Fieldhouse. The Sculpture is fabricated by Luke Parry. The Interactive Map was designed by Graham Peet with illustrations by Amanda Hillier, photographs by Charlotte Wade and Programming by Sakab Bashir.
