At the moment visitors cannot see the Iron Bridge as it is covered due to work being done. You can walk across on walkways. This was disappointing. The Toll House is small and there is not a lot to see inside, apart from interesting written...More

The Ironbridge is set in the beautiful Severn Gorge and is normally a great place to visit. At the moment it is undergoing major restoration work which is not due to finish until 2020
