Got back from three days visiting Ironbridge, Shropshire yesterday with a group of Year 9 pupils from school (plus Richard and Christine). Excellent time in perfect weather. We even stayed in an Elizabethan manor house (Wilderhope Manor)! As well as visiting the 1779 iron bridge itself (wonderful iconic structure that it is) and getting to know all about revolutionary blast furnaces and the like, we spent some time at Blists Hill Victorian Village. We’d all come dressed for the day there in suitable “Victorian” gear – which worked beautifully when we joined lessons in the school house – with a suitably (very) strict teacher/master in charge!
