The Coracle shed, now empty, on the bank of the River Severn, in Ironbridge.
The shed lies just below the world famous Ironbridge.
The shed on the river bank outside the house the Rogers family built.
The shed used to contain the mysterious witch, it is now empty, except for memories.
The shed is in a poor state of repair.
Eustace was the last of a long line of coracle makers to use the shed.
The shed is boarded up and empty, waiting for conservation.

The Rogers family and their remarkable coracle shed
The Rogers family were famous on the River Severn. They made coracles for generations. They lived in Ironbridge through the worst years of poverty and decline. Eustace Rogers, the last coracle maker, died in 2003.
The shed they used is now empty and in need of restoration.
Ironbridge Coracle Trust has been set up to try and preserve something of the extraordinary shed and their way of life.....and their sense of humour!
