The Toy Box, Ironbridge – 34 High Street Ironbridge Shropshire TF8 7AG

Ironbridge is a large village in the borough of Telford and Wrekin in Shropshire, England, UK. The Toy Box toy shop is situated a few yards from the famous bridge itself. Designed by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard and built in 1779, the Iron Bridge we see today was made possible through advances in iron smelting that took place in the century before. Since the 1970s, the bridge has been in the guardianship of English Heritage, and was one of the first places in the UK to be added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
