I grew up along the Severn Valley, and I recall the Telford area being known as the "seven towns" due to its origins of 7 smaller, older towns. I was talking to a couple of friends the other day who also recalled this, but none of us could name all seven towns. Wellington, Madley, Dawley... but what are the other four? The modern district encompasses more than seven towns and villages, so what were the original seven towns? Andrew Oakley (talk) 09:22, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
- I would assume Wellington, Oakengates, Dawley, Madeley, Stirchley, probably Telford (the bit where the town centre is) and possibly Ironbridge? The first four are obvious but the last three could be anything really. Donnington, Hadley, Ketley and Trench are other contenders. Anyway, I would probably just say there were only four (or five if you include Telford Town Centre) Asdfasdf1231234 (talk) 21:26, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
The Telford International Centre could be mentioned as it is one of the more notable and well visited locations —Preceding unsigned comment added by SheffGruff (talk • contribs) 20:47, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
should probably be deleted, as its a tad shite.
- Indeed. It has been removed and nobody has opposed the move. 22.214.171.124 00:22, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
I'm really stuck on how to further expand this article. I've added some new sections, maps and images, but I don't think the town really has as much as history as most. Any suggestions? Asdfasdf1231234 21:01, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
Please can contributors try to make maps and diagrams accessible to those with colour vision problems ("colour blindness"). For instance, by using labels or patterns in addition to colours. This affects 1 in 12 white British males. Andrew Oakley
- I've replaced the image with a clickable link map. Apologies for the delay. Asdfasdf1231234 (talk) 16:29, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
Beatties image - remove?
- Unless anyone can get one with a suitably acceptable composition I really don't see the point; the only visible change to the building exterior is the main black sign. A simple note under the image should be sufficient. It's hardly easy to get 'good' pictures of such a visually unappealing town. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:06, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
An extremely useful resource
Can be found here. I have attempted to incorporate some of the stuff from there, but it is a very length and extensive article and I may need assistance from others. Asdfasdf1231234 (talk) 20:01, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Not sure what someone is trying to prove by vandalising this page using multiple accounts, what are you trying to do?
I've changed the pronunciation of the town's name to a non-rhotic version. This agrees with the linked sound file, which is RP or similar. Whether locals typically use the r-colouring I don't know; Rhotic_accent#Distribution suggests it's on the border of a rhotic area - maybe someone can help? Neurotip (talk) 20:54, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
