Well worth a visit and quite embarrassed that I have waited 70 years to visit this beautiful bridge and lovely village. The Tollhouse was excellent and made even more interesting and informative by the knowledgeable and friendly lady custodian.

The 1st cast iron bridge in the world and still looks amazing compared to modern structures of today! The Tollhouse still has the tarrif board on disply showing the various cost of crossing the bridge depending on what you wanted to cross with. Very interesting.

As part of a package holiday this was the first visit of our day in the Iron Bridge Gorge accompanied by a guide, who pointed out things of interest. We then had time to look in the toll house before moving on

The bridge is undergoing a major restoration project,but still impressed to see.. An impressive bridge and the scaffolding that's going up is another feet of engineering.
