A Day In Iron Bridge Telford

Posted by

It was a pleasure to visit iron bridge in July this year. Iron Bridge was built to join the town’s of Coalbrookdale and Broseley across the river Severn. It was opened to traffic in 1781 and was highly praised. Why? Because it was the first arch bridge in the world to be built out of cast iron. How cool is that?! No wonder it’s viewed the world over as a symbol of the industrial revolution. We were also able to visit a living museum. Blists Hill Victorian town which featured Victorian shops, food and styled currency. A great and informative day out for people who like history. Check it out if you haven’t. Highly recommended. πŸ‘

My favourite shot of the iron bridge.
One thing I loved was how some of the buildings were set into the hills.
An amazing piece of architecture.
A living museum. Blists Hill Victorian town.

There's nothing like a steam engine to set the scene.

The house on the right would have been a doctors surgery in Victorian times. It even had a waiting room inside.
Victorian style streets look way more interesting than modern day ones.
A nice bed of flowers definitely enhances this picture! πŸ˜ƒ
