ENGLAND - FEATURED HOTELS & TRAVEL GUIDE:
|Telford is a new
town in the ceremonial county of Shropshire, England. It is administratively
located in the West Midlands region, and is now by far the largest town
in Shropshire, being the residence for some 130,000 people.
Telford was built in the
1960s and 1970s as a new town, bringing together a number of mining villages,
farms and market towns. As the town develops, the areas between these towns
are becoming increasingly filled. The resulting town is virtually one large
conurbation from Wellington to Shifnal and from Donnington to Dawley. As
a result of the new town's component towns, Telford has several distinct
centers, although the Telford Shopping Centre and Telford Town Park area
is the de facto administrative center of entire town.
Telford has a long history.
As a result there are many attractions ranging from the remains of a bronze
age fort, roman remains, medieval markets, examples of victorian industry
and living, right up to the brand new town created nearly 40 years ago.
The best examples are:
The Wrekin - A local
hill and landmark, with the remains of a bronze age fort on it. Found just
west of Wellington.
Ironbridge - The place
where the industrial revolution started and a World Hertiage Site as a
result of the first ever iron bridge being built there.
Wellington - A pleasant
market town with a market dating back to 1244. The National Trust's Sunnymeade
house is good example of how local victorian gentry lived.
