A climb that has the profile of a ski jump. Starting from the banks of the River Severn, the climb is fairly steady as you pass through the village of Coalbrookdale, but gets much steeper as the climb bends around to the right to take you to the top of Jiggers Bank and the A1469.
The start of the climb is near the famous Ironbridge, built in the late Eighteenth Century and marks one of the important moments in the Industrial Revolution. The iron bridge was revolutionary and enabled stronger building structures.
