Loutherbourg made tours through England to Wales in 1786 and 1800, where he observed industrial workings. This painting shows a view at the Bedlam Furnaces in Madeley Dale, Shropshire, downstream from Ironbridge beside the River Severn. Above the furnaces are open coke hearths, giving off vivid flames and smoke. The groups of buildings to the left are mainly cottages, and on the right, buildings include the furnaces, smithy and joinery, with the two-chimneyed engine house behind and the furnace and casting house on the right.
