We had a brief visit it but what an impressive piece of Victorian engineering. Traffic no longer goes over the bridge so you can have a nice leisurely stroll. Ironbridge Gorge is beautiful.

A wonderful relic from the early days of the Industrial Revolution, the bridge is amazingly preserved and a walk over it gives you great views of the Severn Valley. The village itself is nice for an hour or two too.

Its a bridge that you can walk over and you don't have to pay. In a town where everything is so expensive, its great to have something interesting that is free of charge.
