Love Where I Live : Ironbridge

I have lived in Shropshire now for nearly 10 years (give or take the 9months where we moved back to Lancashire) but Telford is my home, the place where I brought my kids into the world, where my in-laws live, where most of our friends are and also our business. I do miss Lancashire, I miss my family and showing the kids where my childhood memories were made but Shropshire holds alot more. There is alot of history here, picturesque places to visit, lots of green and great days out.

Since originally moving to Shropshire one of my places to visit has to be Ironbridge. Only a couple of miles from where we live, this little town by the River Severn, hosts lots of history and is a really popular tourist attraction.

There isn’t just a bridge to look at when you visit Ironbridge, this little town is a perfect riverside town, lots of little gift shops, restaurants, ice cream shop, cafe’s and much more. You can talk a walk up side streets and feel a part of the history of Ironbridge. It really is lovely.

I do like photographing the steaming cooling towers of Ironbridge Power Station, especially as they are set to vanish from our landscape in the not too distant future as the power station is set to close no later than the end of this year.

So there you have it… one part of my home town which I love.
