Floods in the Gorge - November 2000

The Ironbridge was built to link Broseley with Coalbrookdale and was designed to withstand floods.

It always seems to flood at The Boat but this must be close to the record.

On the morning of November 2nd the Coalport Bridge (1809) was the only route from Broseley to Telford
