Situation: The Old Vicarage is set in just under an acre and is located in a World Heritage site within the Shropshire countryside, approximately 1 mile from Ironbridge. Whilst Ironbridge is popular with tourists for its heritage sites, the area has a strong permanent community and provides some pleasant bars, restaurants and amenities. There are also some excellent schools in and around the area including Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge Church of England Primary School, Wrekin College, The Old Hall, Thomas Telford Academy, Shrewsbury High School and Shrewsbury School.
The Darby family crest can be found on the external of the building, which reflects the property was originally built by the well-known Darby Family in 1901 for the local church. This impressive detached, former Vicarage and Bed & Breakfast boasts a wealth of period features in excellent condition throughout.
