Ironbridge Coracle Trust
Coracles have been part of the history of the Severn Gorge for centuries before the world-famous Iron Bridge was built.
Ironbridge Coracle Trust is a small voluntary charity which is working to conserve and maintain the old coracle shed in Ironbridge.
The Trust also runs the Ironbridge Coracle Regatta every year on August Bank Holiday Monday.
We aim to:
restore the last coracle maker’s shed in England and conserve the collection of objects that were stored within it to ensure they survive in good condition.
make sure that the rural craft of coracle making is better understood through recording the lives and memories of the people who made and used them on the River Severn in Ironbridge.
help more people find out about coracles and the people who made them, by visiting our exhibition and taking part in activities in the New Coracle Shed at the Green Wood Centre.
keep the coracle making and using tradition alive through running training sessions for beginners.
Visit the New Coracle Shed – Open Fri, Sat, Sun 11-3pm during Sept and Oct.
