The Ironmen & Severn Gilders consists of two separate teams based in Ironbridge. The Ironmen, dance Welsh border morris and the Severn Gilders ladies team dance in the north west morris style.

Since 2016 the group has practiced mixing face paint colours rather than solely using the traditional 'black' paint disguises.
