Telford

Telford is a planned town in Shropshire England that was named after the engineer Thomas Telford. The town has a population of around 125,000.

It was built in the 1960s and 1970s as a New town in a former coal-mining area and enveloped the previous towns of Dawley, Oakengates and Wellington. In 1983 the M54 motorway[?] opened, connecting the town to the UK's motorway network.
