Owner description: The world's first iron bridge is located in Ironbridge, the cradle of the Industrial Revolution.
Reviewed 31 December 2017 via mobile

Waste of time visiting at the minute as it is all covered up for restoration work. Apparently by the summer you will be able to walk underneath and see the workmen at work - might be interesting. The work is scheduled to be complete by late 2018.

An icon of our industrial and engineering capabilities of centuries past.
Unfortunately the bridge is covered in scaffold and sheeting so you pretty much can’t see it and won’t do until early 2019 we were told.
The toll house was very informative and the lady working there very helpful.
We will return and hope to see the bridge in it’s repaired glory.

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 see the unusual and many might sat inappropriate positioning of the power station less than a mile down the road. 4 old cooling towers creating an usual industrial backdrop to the otherwise green and pleasant land.

Unfortunately this attraction is undergoing a £3.5 refit and inspection so was covered with protective skin, so not able to appreciate, pity will have to try next year.
