Over the iron bridge

We parked where the railway once ran, the site of Iron Bridge and Broseley station, crossed the bridge and climbed the steps up to the church, then followed the narrow roads beyond to the hilltop. Hodge Bower leads to Church Road and the descent into Coalbrookdale. At Dale End, demolition and excavation have revealed the remains of what appears to be an old water mill, and there’s a very short stretch of old wagonway track, a reminder of Shropshire’s pre-railway age network of primitive lines.
