The Station area, Blists Hill, Ironbridge, Shropshire, England, Great Britain
Blists Hill, Ironbridge.

This is one of the streets that you first see when entering the museum with the railway station on the right.

The building on the left is Lloyds Bank at which visitors can change modern coinage into token coinage that represents the predecimal farthings, halfpennies, pennies, threepenny bits and sixpences, at an exchange rate of 40 new pence to 1 old penny. They can then use the token coins as an alternative to modern currency for buying goods whilst visiting the museum but it's not obligatory.
