| Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust
Source of the world's first iron rails, wheels and boats and site of the first cast-iron bridge - from which the present town gets its name - Ironbridge now seems an unlikely starting point for the Industrial Revolution. Some 250 years later most of the mines and furnaces are silent, but the town is as busy as it ever was. The difference today is that most of its inhabitants are transient rather than resident - for Ironbridge is now one of Britain's most popular tourist destinations. The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust was established in 1967 and the first site opened to the public six years later. Many more sites have opened since and today the area has 8 exciting museums covering a total of 80 acres.

| ANCIENT (OLD) WOODWORKING TOOLS. Jacques Heroux
I was born in Shawinigan, Quebec, Canada, and became familiar with tools at an early age by "playing" with my grandfather's old wooden tools. He was a very good carpenter and cabinetmaker. However it was only after my graduation as an engineer and specialist in environment at the Universities of McGill (B.Eng.) and Montreal (M.Sc.A.) that I became really interested in antique tools. I then started making a collection. I have also accumulated books on the subject of tools, of cabinet making and carpentry. After more than 35 years of engineering practice, my hobby became my new way of "practice". After all those years I have donated a large part of my tool collection to museums. But I still have many fine examples of ancient or antique tools, and I am pleased to show you a few pieces. Time passing by, I have designed a few galleries. Evidently I could not do it alone. My grandson Simon Carpentier helped me. I thank him very much. We are trying to shorten the generation gap. Please have a look at each of these galleries.
