Ironbridge Walking Festival

The 2016 Ironbridge Gorge Walking Festival has come to a successful conclusion again, some 600 walkers have walked 6000 miles over 9 days, including 8 who completed over 50 miles and a further 15 who completed over 100 miles.

During the week we have covered the area from Linley and Nordley, Shifnal, The Wrekin (several times!), Much Wenlock, Harley, Telford and most of the villages and towns between. However as importantly there have been the themed walks in and around the Ironbridge Gorge itself and our specialists have explained everything from the engineering techniques used to make the first Iron Bridge in the world to the use of some of the most up to date techniques to stabilise the gorge to maintain it in the way we all love. We have also been able to show how nature is starting or (in a lot of places) to take the land back from the industrial sites of the 17 and 18 Century.

If you have failed to take the opportunity to join us in 2016, put our Festival in your diary for 2017, we will be walking between 29 Apr and 07 May.

If you would like more information please contact ironbridgewalking@btinternet.com , or look at our Facebook page. We regularly walk in and around the Gorge on Sunday mornings.
