Ironbridge Rowing Club (IRC) was founded in 1870 to promote the sport of rowing in the Ironbridge Gorge and the surrounding area. We're looking back on 150 years of history, by collecting archive material and oral histories, so we can understand and celebrate our shared heritage. 

This project is being delivered by the IRC Committee and its members, and is generously funded by Telford & Wrekin Council as part of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Festival.
