Coracle Shed

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!
