Last week, we attended a community event hosted by The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust at Museum of the Gorge to understand how the public would like to see this wonderful Grade II* building used in the future.
Following our repair works to the external fabric, the Trust are looking to the next stage of works, focussing on the interior of the museum and consulting visitors and local businesses regarding how they would like to see the building used. Some very interesting discussions were had. It was brilliant to see the public engaging with the works carried out so far, putting forward their ideas for how the space could be used. The new bespoke chimney pots commissioned from West Meon Pottery were also available to view before they were installed on top of the chimneys this week.
