On the way up to Llangollen, our daughter noticed the signs to Ironbridge, and thought if there was time we'd come back that way. And there was, and we did.

Ironbridge is a town and has in it a bridge made of iron.

We got there late in the day - so late that we didn't have to pay for parking- the meter refused all our money. Our daughter called our son-in-law about 1700 from the parking lot to say we were about 2 hours from home.

We walked around a little and decided to eat there at the Iron Bridge Tea Rooms. We were one of the last ones there, leaving at 18:43. I think that it is mostly for lunches.

    Glad you at least had a quick look at this fascinating open-air museum. I used to take groups from Birmingham to Ironbridge every summer, since Birmingham and Frankfurt are twinned cities.

    I ate in that very tearoom! Fabulous photo of the bridge - the first cast iron bridge to be built.
