This report, commissioned by Wardell Armstrong LLP, provides a detailed overview of the geology and landslides of the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire. This report presents factual information about the landslides of the Ironbridge Gorge area based on a limited desk study and no fieldwork took place. Many of the reports that it references are more than 30 years old and it must be stressed that this current work and the previous references should not be used to make any decisions about land use or engineering without making a proper assessment of the ground. The unstable nature of the landslide areas mean that the situation on the ground can change considerably over short periods of time.
