Ironbridge Walking Festival

Welcome to the 10th Annual Ironbridge Gorge Walking Festival for 2015 ten days of free, varied and rewarding walks in and around this unique World Heritage Site!

As you explore the Gorge, you will discover more about the remarkable history of this unique part of the world, where the Industrial Revolution started over 250 years ago. Find out about some of the flora and fauna with walk leaders who will help you identify flowers, trees and birds.

From extended all day hikes for the brave hearted, to family friendly trails and short informative walks, this year’s Festival promises to have something to whet the appetite of all ages and abilities.

The programme is split into two parts, THEMED WALKS, these are more informative mostly under 5 miles or LONG WALKS, these are more suitable for more regular walkers. All walks return to the start point unless specified.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, take part in 10 different walks of 10 miles over 10 days to see an assortment of wonderful views of the gorge from all directions. If 10 days is too much then we have the opportunity to cover 50 miles over the Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday), or extend this to 100 miles in seven days. For more information about these contact ironbridgewalking@btinternet.com.

Meet the Gruffalo in Loamhole Dingle, explore the mining sites of Broseley and Benthall, find out more about the tragedy of the Nine Men of Madeley or just enjoy the countryside that has reclaimed this previously industrialised area.
