Madeley

Madeley is another of our market towns, located within the Telford and Wrekin area of Shropshire.

Madeley is full of history, its orgins can be traced back to the 18th Century and it is recorded in the Doomsday book.

The Parish of Madeley was orginally made up from the towns of Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale. The town retains 51 historic listed buildings that give visitors an idea of its importance.

Perhaps the most significant of these buildings is Woolfe's Barn, where in 1651, King Charles II found sanctuary after fleeing the battle of Worcester during the Civil War.

The church of St Michael was designed by Thomas Telford and was built in 1796. Opposite the church, you'll find the Old Rectory, a house dating back to 1700 where the methodist Reverend, John Fletcher, who was a follower of John Wesley, lived from 1760 to 1785.

Another historic building is Madeley Court, which largely dates back to the mid-16th Century, however some parts go as far back as the 13th. The building was the home of Sir Basil Brooke, one of the architects of the industrial revolution and today it has been renovated into a hotel.

It’s been called ‘truly inspirational’ by HRH Prince of Wales, ‘ one of the world’s most appealing small museums’ by historian Dr John Davies and won numerous national awards, including ‘Britain’s Best Hidden Gem’. When the BBC brought Historic Royal Palaces Curator and historian, Lucy Worsley to film, she exclaimed ‘WHAT a stunning place!’ You really do need to see for yourself what all the fuss is over this exceptional attraction in the tiny border town of Presteigne. You can explore the ‘upstairs downstairs’ lives of its Victorian inhabitants, from Judge’s to their servants and felonious guests, all by the flicker of gas and oil lighting throughout and a hands-on policy that allows you to immerse yourself into their world.
