After looking on the Ironbridge website before making a long trip to come here, failed to see any mention of the fact that the main photogenic attraction is totally covered with plastic for renovations. I totally understand that work is needed on this iconic structure,...More

so this icon is enveloped in tarpaulins for 18 months. Setting is nice despite recent snows and shortest day of the year greyness. Worth wandering around, just a shame not to have been able to properly see what we came for!

The village is beautiful and the setting for the bridge is spectacular. Even though the bridge is covered, we were able to see bits of the bridge, stripped right back to its bare bones where the workers were refitting. Also worth a short drive to...More

After you leave the M54 follow the BROWN signs to the museums and into Ironbridge. You pass the bridge on your left, travelling down hill. There is a large car park 200 metres past the bridge on your left. You can walk back... More
