Ironbridge is situated
on the River Severn near Telford, the bridge in the photograph
as lent its name to the town that grew up around it. The
bridge as its name suggests is made of iron and infact this was
the first bridge of its kind to be built in the world, it was
completed in the late 18th century.
The bridge and the surrounding area is now a World Heritage
site. We visited it during June 2001.
