Foundry

Foundry

Although the passage of time can give a fading patina to all buildings, I can’t see modern structures ageing in quite such an appealing way as this brick structure. What’s remarkable is that this is a museum and the buildings have been brought from elsewhere. This is the casting shop where you can see the moulds being prepared and then filled with molten iron, and it’s located at the Blists Hill Museum alongside the River Severn in Shropshire. This was one of the earliest sites where the Industrial Revolution began in England.

  1. So true John, old buildings have a life of their own, the walls tell tales on days gone bye. I love this image, the colour and tone is so nice and I love the way they have arranged the iron rods and small ladders in size order, very orderly and museum like 🙂

  2. There’s something about old brick buildings…very compelling…and how nice that they transported the buildings entire to a new place to preserve them in a museum….
