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, but I didn’t see this mentioned on the website. Maybe I missed something? It was my first ever visit and although the toll house was open, I was really really disappointed by the visit. I will make a point of returning some day, but I was on holiday and chose this destination as the highlight of a long distance walk. Shame.

The bridge is currently undergoing restoration work, but still makes an interesting visit and you can still walk over it. The old Tollhouse was very interesting and the lady on the desk was very knowledgable and helpful. Still wort a visit to see and read the information on the bridge.

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.
