Under scaffold/covers which was a shame but I understand the need and glad to see that the renovators seem to be doing a really thorough job!! The museum had a spectacular model which captivated me for over half an hour. The whole area is fascinating...More

We were disappointed to find the bridge completely shrouded. One can’t see its structure. You can walk across on a adjoining pedestrian pathway but even there you won’t be able to see anything but the scaffolding that is covering the bridge. Nice area but not...More

You're going to want to know in advance whether you'll be seeing and walking on an architectural marvel of a beautiful bridge, or, a lot of scaffolding hiding aforementioned bridge. We went at the wrong time of year. SIGH! Still, a lovely site, a beautiful...More

Popped to Iron Bridge to see the wonderful bridge but could not see anything as it was completely shrouded in tarpaulin. A great shame but I suppose it does need tlc sometimes.

Interesting to read about the history of the bridge. The bridge is currently undercover due to repair and restoration work.

We popped over to Ironbridge for a couple of hours on Saturday. The bridge is all covered up for repair works. We did cross over the bridge but you can not see much at the moment.

The bridge is wrapped in plastic sheeting whilst restoration work is carried out. However you can still walk over it and there are lots of information boards along the length. The Tollhouse is an excellent little information centre and its free!

Good location in Telford. Very hard to park. Even tho this was being repainted. The English Hertige did a good job with providing additional info about the rebuild.

Hi, you can walk over the Iron bridge and there are 3 different walks of various lengths from there which are great to exercise the dog. Then you can take a dog into the Victorian Village free of charge. (around £18pperson... More
