History

At the end of 18th century, Coalport was a small settlement on the banks of the river Severn, an area noted for producing ceramics since Roman times.

It was called Coalport after the coal that was transferred from canal to river vessels at this junction. The most important industry to be attracted to the new town was the china manufacturing enterprise of John Rose who moved into a new factory at Coalport in 1779.

This factory was converted to the current youth hostel in 1997 and some of the original features, including the decorative flooring on the first floor, remain.

Meet the team

Manager recommends: This Gorge offers so much to do for a sightseeing holiday or school trip, but if you're just on a weekend break you must take a walk from Coalbrookdale and step back in time at Blist Hill Victorian Town.

On longer breaks, there’s still plenty to do within a twenty minute drive such as visiting the Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, learning about the creation of the modern Olympic Games at Much Wenlock or exploring the interesting town of Bridgnorth with its funicular railway linking the high and low towns. On a visit of any length, a walk into Ironbridge for a well earned drink on the banks of the River Severn finishes off a perfect day.
