It is named after civil engineer Thomas Telford.
The town was put together in the 1960s and 1970s as a new town on what was previously industrial and agricultural land and smaller towns. 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. Telford Shopping Centre, a modern shopping mall, was constructed at the new town's geographical centre, along with an extensive Town Park. The M54 motorway was completed in 1983, connecting the town with the West Midlands conurbation.

Telford has easy transport links to all parts of the borough. Here we have included some of the local maps and directions which are designed so that you can familiarise yourself with the Telford area.
