   Coal Brookdale is a famous foundry in England that has been credited with some major "firsts" in the field of Iron Casting.

    The foundry was the site of the first coke-fired iron smelting furnace in the world, built by Abraham Darby in 1708 out of an existing charcoal furnace.


    The first blast day for the new furnace was 10 January 1709, and from the start, Darby produced cheap iron pots using a new, dry-sand mold technique, with complete success.
