Blists Hill Victorian Town in Ironbridge opened it’s doors on the evening of Saturday November 7 for a Family Fireworks Extravaganza. The streets were illuminated by gaslight as they would have been in the 19th century, and the town’s shops, cottages, and workshops were open for visitors to talk to the “resident” Victorians about life in the late 1800s.
The magnificent new Canal Street is lined on both sides with a wonderful parade of shops, including a Drapers and Outfitters, Post Office, Photographers, Sweetshop, and Fried Fish Dealers. The artisans’ corner includes plumbers, tinsmiths and decorative plasterers.
The evening was rounded off with an authentic Victorian funfair, and a spectacular fireworks show. An excellent night of entertainment!
