In October 2007 Ironbridge Archaeology was commissioned by Telford and Wrekin Council to undertake a desk-based assessment of land on the north and south sides of the River Severn at 'The Lloyds' (north side) and 'Lloyds Head' (south side). This desk-based assessment will form part of an Environmental Impact Assessment which will be submitted as part of an application for planning permission. Engineering works will comprise further stablisation measures (including piling) on both sides of the River Severn. The study area once formed an important mining community and was heavily populated with industries dealing in iron, brick and tile making. Though one of the tile factories is still in operation at Jackfield, all of these earlier industries have ceased in this part of the Gorge. The assessment area currently consists of waste land to the north and houses to the south, along with the disused line of the former Severn Valley Railway. Sites of archaeological potential have been identified within the assessment area, although the survival of these features is uncertain. These include the remains of former gardens, pathways and tramways, together with various buildings and wharf structures.

In June 2008 Ironbridge Archaeology was commissioned by Birse Civils, on behalf of Telford and Wrekin Council, to undertake archaeological recording of the remains of a mill, located on the south bank of the River Severn. Engineering works involved the implementation of stabilisation measures (including piling) on both sides of the River Severn. The archaeological recording was to take place prior to continuation of works in the area of the mill. The area where stabilisation work was taking place was once an important mining community and was heavily populated with industries dealing in iron, brick and tile making. Though one of the tile factories is still in operation at Jackfield, all of these earlier industries have ceased in this part of the Gorge. The features which were recorded are of local significance.

Recording of former workhouse buildings at the site of Westcliffe Hospital, Stoke-on-Trent. The exterior of the Porter's Lodge and Vagrants' Ward were recorded and the New Infirmary was recorded both internally and externally. These three buildings originally formed part of the Wolstanton and Burselm Union Workhouse and were built in 1894 as part of an extension to the workhouse site. They were all subject to modifications during their use as hospital buildings.

In February and March 2016 Ironbridge Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief during investigation works at the Iron Bridge, Shropshire. The investigation works included the excavation of seven trial holes in the deck, including trial removal of caulking, measurements, inspection, levels and reinstatement. Nothing particularly unexpected was uncovered during the archaeological watching brief. Nevertheless, the current programme of works has provided an excellent insight into the form and location of services located on the Iron Bridge, and has served to identify instances of historic repair. It has also been particularly useful in investigating the nature and extent of caulking and sealants utilised during waterproofing works to the gaps between the deck plates on the main arch and the deck plate upstands on the side arches in the 1970s. The entire process of removing the deck surface material, identifying, sampling and removing the caulking material was recorded in detail.
