The Iron Bridge

The Iron Bridge crosses the River Severn in Shropshire, England. It was the first arch bridge in the world to be made of cast iron, a material which was previously too expensive to use for large structures. However, a new blast furnace nearby lowered the cost and encouraged local engineers and architects to solve a long-standing problem of a crossing over the river. This is the first iron bridge in the world, designed by Thomas Pritchard in 1775 and built by Abraham Darby III in 1777-79.
