I like the view. Did you take the picture from the bridge?
Chris: Yes CherryPie: I was almost in the middle of the span. It was taken on the day of our Blists Hill meet up

Did it rust away completely, Chris?
Chris: Nononono - I'm standing on it!
A lovely little riverside village.
Chris: Cute isn't it

I like the red window framing - a prper Engish riverside village where the world seems to be still in order ...
Chris: And it is the very cradle of the industrial revolution too Philine: as a result of what started in this unassuming gorge the whole world changed

The touches of red give the photo a nice lift, remarkable absence of cars - parked or otherwise!
Chris: All those things you notice attracted me too Mike
A fine landscape Chris - looks idyllic - I'd always had a picture in my mind of an overtly industrial setting for Ironbridge - myth suitably dispelled.
Chris: It used to be as you describe but a long time ago. Pity you couldn't have met us at Blists Hill
great composition Chris. very pretty
Chris: This is where the modern world, the industrial part, all began Sesan. It's a bit difficult to believe that in 2012 but it's true
There is something about this I love. The misty faded look on the left is such a contrast to the bright side with the buildings. Really love this - a likey.
Chris: That is very kind of you Mary: taken after the Shutterchance meet-up at Blists Hill
Hard to imagine this is the place where the Industrial revolution started
Chris: It certainly is in clean shiny century 21!
Every year we intend going to Ironbridge, and every year we never seem to make it. It does look a delightful little place.
Chris: It is charming Brian
Nice area to dip below the surface into industrial history.
Chris: There's still a lot of it around if you look

Before I saw the title I recongnised the location. They are so fortunate to have founda town callled Irobridge sothat they could build their bridge there. Wouldn't be quite the same if they had built in in Woodbridge.
Chris: If they'd done that the industrial revolution might have happened just up the road from me in Iron Acton
Classic view of an interesting place, Chris. Swift half in The Tontine?
Chris: Mmmm...don't mind if I do Graeme!
