We travel to Shropshire this week to the village of Ironbridge, said to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Its story and that of the bridge that gave the village its name is fascinating, with long reaching threads to this day.
This week we travel to Wales to see another impressive Cistercian monastery - Tintern Abbey. I visited Tintern with my fellow history students on a ‘reading party’ weekend in Herefordshire. We were each assigned three new title history books to read and report on to the group, each night of our 5 night stay.
