Torch Relay in Ironbridge

By Linda Tancs

On the border of North Wales and approximately three hours from London is the town of Ironbridge in Shropshire, England.  Its world famous Iron Bridge is the first arch bridge to be made of cast iron.  The bridge crosses the River Severn at the Ironbridge Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will cross the Iron Bridge today at 3:14 p.m., making its way along Wellington Road to the Museum of Iron and finishing at the Coalbrookdale pub at 3:39 p.m.  Entertainment starts at 2:00 p.m.  Expect large crowds; use the free park and ride at Stoney Hill.
