I bought a family passport for the Ironbridge Gorge museums not long ago.
We get them half price through my employer in conjunction with the Transforming Telford quango I’ve blogged about before (a VP at my employer is a director of the quango as well). At £24 for a family passport that lets us into every attraction however many times we want for a year, I put aside my principles and snatched their hands off.
We spent most of the day at Blists Hill yesterday as it’s only 5 minutes down the road. Blists Hill is a victorian town that’s been built pretty much from scratch. There was a big blast furnace on the site previously and a handful of associated buildings but over the years the trust that owns the site has bought victorian buildings from the surrounding area, taken them down brick by brick and rebuilt them at Blists Hill.
Here are some pictures we took yesterday:
