Seems to be. I’ll go for b&w. Inevitably, and despite the forecast, the sun decides to shine (for a while), and the camera switches itself to colour mode. Perhaps it’s trying to tell me something? For the purpose of these pictures, I’ll stick with plan A. It’s Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale, staying with the quieter, less-frequented ways.
It’s a handy place to leave the car! Too warm for energetic walks up hills – best to stay under the trees where possible, even if there aren’t many photo opportunities. If we walk downstream on the north bank, we can return to Ironbridge on the south bank, along the old railway track – and we’ll have earned an ice cream by the time we’re there. Refreshments disposed of, it’s a short walk back to Bedlam, and we can do most of it away from the road.

Another sunny afternoon! We’re taking a short wander on the other side of the Severn, at first through the woodlands above the river, before skirting around the back of Ironbridge to descend towards the unwrapped bridge. It looks splendid in its new red livery – it will glow, I imagine, when the sun’s going down on a later spring evening.
Mostly concentrating on the minor details at Blists Hill this afternoon – the place is over-run with coach-loads of school-children…
A showery day – perhaps not ideal for a long walk. How about Blists Hill? – we haven’t been there for a while, and there’s plenty of shelter if it rains. (It didn’t…)
Can’t stay in all day, but the weather’s poor and deteriorating… The China Museum at Coalport is worth exploring – the china is astonishing! (there are those who like it). We leave at about twenty to four – already it’s becoming dark, and the rain has turned to sleet – which turns to snow as we climb out of the valley.
