Power in the Gorge
Power in the Gorge
Although Ironbridge Gorge was the cradle of the industrial revolution and was once packed with steam and water power it is easy to think this is all a thing of the past. However, at 1 GW Ironbridge B produces more power than was ever produced in the Gorge in those heady days over 150 years ago.
The picture is a viewbag but it has a Wow factor.
