Upper Coalbrookdale Landscape Project

This exciting new project is exploring the early non-industrial landscape of the upper part of Coalbrookdale. Using a variety of methodologies and approaches, we are beginning to understand the wider 17th and 18th century landscape in all its wondrous complexity...

...a fascinating palimpsest of formal gardens, avenues, pools, woodland and even a water tower. Geophysics, environmental sampling and excavation are all being deployed. We hope to run a large excavation next year to fully expose the remains of the 18th century summer house.
