Travel | Ironbridge 

Sometimes you just need to escape everyone and everything.

Coalbrookdale

Not far from where I call home is the beautiful world heritage site Ironbridge Gorge, a lovely sweeping valley which cuts its way through the Shropshire countryside that is home to stunning former industrial buildings and various other monuments to its past as the birthplace of the industrial revolution.

Now that the weather has started to improve and the clocks have gone forwards, I took the opportunity to stroll along the riverside and explore just some of the sights that greet you on your way downstream as the sun slowly set.

Visions of an industrial past

Getting up close and personal with the old girl

The Iron Bridge

The first iron bridge in the world

The very picturesque Ironbridge gorge

The River Severn winding its way downstream

Must of been quite a sight when in use
