    Iron Bridge was constructed in 1779 over the Severn River and was the first iron bridge in the world. The construction of this bridge was a major milestone and turning point for English engineering as it marked the beginning of an era where the use of cast iron in the construction of buildings and bridges became very popular. The significance of the bridge was so huge that it lent its name to the wooded valley around it.
