This site is concerned with the visible remains of Telford's industrial past, and especially with the canals and railways which provide the transport so vital to the success of industry here as elsewhere.

Note: Certain correspondents have complained that we have included in Exploring Telford places outside the new town: we acknowledge we have strayed into the surrounding area, and even further afield. As neither Telford town, nor the Borough of Telford and the Wrekin existed at the time the canals and railways which are the main focus of this site were in service, we do not feel constrained by their boundaries.
