Ironbridge Rowing Club is a unique sports club situated at the UNESCO World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge Gorge, dwarfed by the iconic cooling towers of Ironbridge Power Station and sitting on the River Seven.
The Club was founded in 1870 to promote the sport of rowing in the Ironbridge Gorge and the surrounding area. It was one of the first rowing clubs to be founded away from the Thames as the sport of rowing developed in the early 19th Century. The Ironbridge Gorge provides ideal conditions for participation in one of the most scenic settings for the sport in the UK.
It is possible to use 4.5 miles of the River Severn and except in conditions of extreme flood the river can be used all year round. It is also an extremely attractive site, Ironbridge Gorge is a major tourist area, attracting thousands of visitors each year and one of the leading World Heritage sites in Britain.
We're a small-but-perfectly-formed club always happy to welcome rowers, visitors, and drinkers to our oasis by the Severn.
Good morning/afternoon and welcome to the Ironbridge Rowing Club website. May this online viewing not deter you from a visit in person? We have rowed on the river for over 140 years and enjoyed every second! IRC are approaching 150 years of existence, we hope to continue with the same ethos as before with success and positivity.
We look forward to meeting you soon either on the water or at our own regatta in June,
