About Telford

Telford sits in the beautiful county of Shropshire in the heart of the UK, just 30 miles (40 minutes) west of Birmingham on the M54 motorway. All business locations in Telford are within ten minutes of the motorway providing direct access to the national road network, as well as train and freight services and links to nearby airports and ports.

Telford continues to be an important regional growth centre and it is predicted that the population will rise up to around 200,000 over the next two decades. This will make Telford larger than cities like Newcastle, York and Oxford are today. This step-change in the growth and development of Telford is going to open up many new and diverse opportunities for individuals and businesses.

Named after Thomas Telford, a famous civil engineer, the town was built in the 1960s and 1970s as a new town on previously industrial and agricultural land. Similarly to other planned towns of the era, Telford was created from the merger of other, smaller settlements, most notably the towns of Wellington, Oakengates, Madeley and Dawley. Telford Shopping Centre, a modern shopping mall, was constructed at the new town's geographical centre, along with an extensive Town Park.

Telford also incorporates the northern half of Ironbridge Gorge, a scenic tourist destination and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town advertises itself as "The Birthplace of Industry", due to its proximity to Coalbrookdale, and its own activity during the Industrial Revolution as part of the Shropshire Coalfield. The River Severn flows along its southern most boundary.

In 2007, a £250 million regeneration plan for the town centre was announced, which will include the pedestrianisation of the road surrounding the shopping centre, and the creation of new cafes, bars and shops which will lead to 1,750 new jobs.
