THURSDAY 6 OCTOBER 2016
Our Autumn outing this year is to Ironbridge in Shropshire, the “Birthplace of the industrial Revolution” and a World Heritage Site which includes ten museums.
We shall visit the Coalport China Museum, which has a fine exhibition of Coalport and Caughley china, displayed in the former factory where they were once made.
A soup and sandwich lunch is included, after which we will move on to Jackfield Tile Museum. Once again housed in a former Victorian factory, it is filled with British tiles and settings of domestic and commercial interiors. The museum has recently added the John Scott Gallery to house a collection of tiles by designers such as Pugin, de Morgan, Morris and Dresser.
The price of the outing is £36 (£38 guests) which includes coach transport, entry fees, lunch and tips.
Please send your cheque and the completed booking form by 19 September 2016 to George Derbyshire,
