Bus shelter gallery is just the ticket

A bus shelter in Coalbrookdale is being used as a photographic gallery by a voluntary group which is seeking to spruce up the area.

And it is currently displaying the first set of photos in the group's inaugural photographic exhibition.

The Coke Hearth Improvements Group comprises local residents aiming to improve the Coke Hearth area of Coalbrookdale, a "gateway" which is the first place many visitors see when they come to the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.

Among its initiatives was setting up its own little library using book donations, sited in an alcove which previously was home to a phone box.

Jean Wright of the group said: "Since then we have a ‘free little gallery’ in the bus shelter opposite and are currently exhibiting the first set of entries into our first, annual, open photography exhibition."

The theme is Views of the Gorge, and the photos have also been posted on the group's Facebook page.

People are being invited to "like" their preferred photo or photographs, and then the winning image will be enlarged and go on permanent display in the Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge Community Centre.
