We are two separate but very closely associated teams of Morris Dancers based in the historic town of Ironbridge in Shropshire.
The Ironmen are a men’s team who dance in the Welsh Border tradition, while The Severn Gilders are a women’s team who dance North-West morris.
Although we dance separately, we almost always appear together (that way we get a rest between dances!), and many of the dancers from one team appear as musicians while the other is dancing.
Originally formed in 1976, we dance at local events as well as festivals all over the country
