Yes, very much enjoy a trip back in time and relax in a beautifully
restored trip in a steam train as we travelled between
Bridgnorth and Kidderminster to this station was on our doorstep to our campsite.
One of the most picturesque and fascinating towns in Shropshire, so other members
went to Bridgnorth and the gardens also offer the most wonderful views over Bridgnorth
as well as the Severn Valley Railway, as a great place to relax and take in the atmosphere.
Some members went to see the world’s first iron bridge
which is the first known metal bridge was erected over the River Severn
at Coalbrookdale in 1779 by Abraham Darby.
This now world-famous industrial monument gave its name
to the town – Iron Bridge, that grew around it and to the spectacular
wooded gorge that was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
