always get telford mixed up with ironbridge, because thomas telford specialised in iron bridges

but is there an iron bridge there too

ironbridge is actually pretty nice, i escaped to there last night and had a decent pub meal, it was pretty and had heart to it. telford is obv not meant for residence, footpaths end, there are no homes, there are no non-chain restaurants. it's still sort of amazing that even a space for workers is so completely devoid of anything else.

have you made it into wellington yet? = another nice little old shropshire town, not swallowed up by telford bcz the m54 cuts one from the other

i remember frank chicken kazuko hohki making a documentary abt the japanese community in telford back in the 80s or early 90s (it doesn't seem to be on youtube under an english title)

ironbridge > wellington tho, prettiness-wise

Didn't want to talk about it on FB but the last time I went to Telford was over 30 years ago and it was a mini-roundabout of Hell back then
