Make sure you visit the Ironbridge Gorge, one of Shropshire’s top attractions, known throughout the world as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Nature has reclaimed most of the former industrial sites, leaving the gorge with a unique and beautiful wooded valley. The gorge is now a maze of footpaths, bridleways and country lanes. Built by Abraham Darby III and now recognised as one of the great symbols of the Industrial Revolution, the remarkable Iron Bridge still dominates the small town that bears its name. A visit to the Blists Hill Victorian Town is not to me missed! There you’ll be able to meet the Victorians in their shops, cottages and workplaces, see all the animals, enjoy a horse and cart ride or a cone of traditional Fish and Chips.
