After a longish drive from his home, Mr Monkey arrived at Blists Hill, one of the Ironbridge Gorge museums. Blists Hill is a re-created Victorian town, a mixture of buildings that have been built to look Victorian, Victorian buildings that have been moved from somewhere else, and Victorian buildings that have been there all the time. Mr Monkey bought his entrance ticket, scampered across the level crossing, and headed for the main street of the town.
You can find out about Blists Hill and the other museums in the area at the Ironbridge Gorge Museums website.
