The world s first, internationally most famous, and locally largest iron bridge is that which gives its name to the town of Iron Bridge in the south of Telford and is the town s most famous feature. It was built across the River Severn in 1779 by local ironmaster Abraham Darby III to demonstrate the quality of the iron now produced by the process his grandfather invented to smelt iron using coal rather than coke. Immediately, it was world-famous, President Thomas Jefferson of the USA being one of the first to buy an engraving of it!
