Telford House Removals
Telford, over the past few years, has undergone extensive development. It is the largest town in Shropshire and is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Ironbridge Gorge. The town advertises itself as ‘The Birthplace of Industry’ due to its proximity to places in the Ironbridge Gorge area which are internationally recognised as being important in the Industrial Revolution. However, today, it is a modern town with all the usual shopping and business facilities that you would expect of an up and coming location.

If you fancy something action packed, Telford Snowboard and Ski Centre is located on the outskirts in Madeley. At the facility you can indulge in skiing, snowboarding, snowblading, and ice skating sessions. Telford also has a separate ice rink.
Telford is surrounded by beautiful countryside, but many head to the Wrekin for a spot of fresh air. It is not for the faint hearted, as there are some steep parts, but the uphill struggle is worth it for the stunning views when you reach the summit.
Transport Links Telford
Telford is handily located on the M54, which is a spur of the M6 linking the town to Wolverhampton and the West Midlands. You can also access Shrewsbury and Cannock easily via the A5.
Telford benefits from having three railway stations; Wellington, Oakengates, and Telford Central. Telford Central has services to Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Shrewsbury, Chester, Holyhead and London. Oakengates and Wellington both have services to Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury, and Birmingham.
Due to Telford being a new town, it was planned with public transport in mind. Telford has one of the lowest car ownership figures in the UK as many rely solely on the fantastic public transport connections in place.
