Jackfield gates

A pair of old railway crossing gates that are part of Ironbridge’s industrial heritage are being taken restored. The Grade II listed gates, usually located near Calcutts House in Jackfield, were installed around 1862 as part of the Severn Valley Railway, which was opened on 3 January 1862 and carried trains from Shrewsbury to Hartlebury.
Small Woods Trust, a local woodlands charity, will be undertaking the restoration of the wooden components while local firm J & A Stevenson will be doing the metal work. The gates are being thoroughly dried out before work starts – they will then be reassembled and repainted before coming home to Jackfield.
