Who we are

The Ironbridge Railway Trust was formed in November 2005 and is a Company limited by Guarantee, incorporated in 2007, gaining charitable status in 2009. It was formed for the purpose of promoting sustainable transport into The World Heritage site at Ironbridge, by advocating the reinstatement of the old GWR(Severn Valley – Hartelbury to Shrewsbury via Bridgnorth) branch line through the Ironbridge Gorge, following the redevelopment of former power station site at Buildwas.
