This TOWN lies in Shropshire on the River Severn. Its name comes from its pioneering 18th-century crossing, which was the first in the world to be made of cast iron.

In 2018, it was repainted dark red to replace its old grey colour. “I like red, as it’s much more Christmassy,” quips Ruby. Some of the families we help get to take a walk there from nearby Benthall Hall, thanks to our friends at the National Trust.
