The Ironmen and Severn Gilders are two separate but closely associated teams based in the historic town of Ironbridge in Shropshire. The Ironmen are a men’s team who dance in the Welsh Border tradition, while the Severn Gilders are a women’s team who dance North-West Morris. Although they dance separately, they almost always appear together as many of the dancers from one team appear as musicians for the other. Originally formed in 1976, they have danced at festivals all over the country and Europe. The team colours are black and red.
