The area around Ironbridge is described by those promoting it as a tourist destination as the "Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution"
This description is based on the idea that Abraham Darby perfected the technique of smelting iron with coke, in Coalbrookdale, allowing much cheaper production of iron.

Visited here back in May 2015, on a weekend break, for the Severn Valley Railway the first day, then here the second day together with Blists Hill Museum. Not a lot to see in Ironbridge, but the bridge is very photogenic and took quite a few images of it 😃 Looking at my images, I have one taken on almost the exact same spot! A very nicely framed shot, David, and the inclusion of the people works well 👍

I live just down the road from here David. The bridge has been painted 'back to it's original ' colour so they tell us - a sort of red oxide colour. Looks very pretty on a grey day! Makes a good shot at night when its floodlit.
Must be a popular viewpoint - I too have this shot somewhere.

Very nice detail on the geometric shapes that make up this bridge. The couple sitting in the corner are a big bonus.
