The gathering at the cradle of the industrial revolution of nearly all the Livery Company Masters  and their consorts including some from the regions too, along with the Lord Mayor, Lady Mayoress and both Sheriffs.  A fascinating collection of museums along the River Severn at the iconic Ironbridge with most convivial company.  The initial rain on Saturday eventually cleared to make the walk around the recreated Victorian village of Blist hill most enjoyable.
