About Telford

The town is named after civil engineer Thomas Telford, who engineered many road and rail projects in Shropshire. Telford was put together in the 1960s and 1970s as a new town on previously industrial and agricultural land.

Like other planned towns of the era, Telford was created from the merger of other, smaller settlements, most notably the towns of Wellington, Oakengates, Madeley and Dawley.

Many of the new town’s newer inhabitants were originally from Birmingham or Wolverhampton.


Telford is a large new town in the borough of Telford and Wrekin in the ceremonial county of Shropshire, England, about 13 miles (21 km) east of Shrewsbury, and 30 miles (48 km) northwest of Birmingham.
