History[ edit ] A settlement existed in and is listed as Bosle in the Domesday Book. The town is located on the south bank of the Ironbridge Gorge and so shares much of the history of its better known, but more recent, neighbour, Ironbridge. In , the town of Broseley consisted of only 27 houses and was part of the Shirlett Royal Forest. The wagonways were almost certainly constructed for the transport of coal and clay and it was these resources that led to the huge expansion of the town during the Industrial Revolution. Many of the developments celebrated by the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust ‘s collection of preserved industrial heritage sites either started in Broseley or were connected to the town. Broseley was a centre for ironmaking, pottery and clay pipes; the earliest recorded pipemaker was working in the town in The Broseley Pipeworks is one of the trust’s ten museums, as is the Jackfield Tile Museum , which is situated in Jackfield , just north-east of the town. Abraham Darby I , who developed the process of smelting iron using coking coal, is buried here.

The treasure which Ethelwold presented to Peterborough included two silver bells, ten banging bells very costly and seven handbells. Dunstan, who was skilled in music, painting, embroidery and metalwork, even made bells. Our first church here in Ellesmere, built of wood, probably had one hanging bell. The stone church that replaced it in Norman times was given a small octagonal west tower, certainly built to house one or more banging bells.

History[ edit ] Ellesmere Castle was probably an 11th-century motte-and-bailey castle most likely built by either Roger de Montgomerie, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury , or his son Roger the Poitevin at Castlefields overlooking the Mere. Only its earthworks now remain, with the top of the motte being used for the bowling green , which still commands a fine view. His descendants retained Ellesmere until apparently the late s when the lordship was acquired, probably by force, by Madog ap Maredudd of Powys.
