Despite being covered in scaffolding it is still impressive and the toll house was very informative. Person in place was also helpful.

Nice little quiet village, loads of walks along the river or around the surrounding river banks or village.

Excellent presentation of the story behind the Iron Bridge. Staff also helpful and informative. Grateful to the English Hertitage person that took time to show us what he could without going onto the bridge, as the working team are nearing the end of the restoration.
