Ironbridge Gorge Walks

Ironbridge Gorge is the collective title for a cluster of small villages huddled in the densely wooded Severn Valley to the south of Telford. Ironbridge Gorge was the crucible of the Industrial Revolution, a process encapsulated by its famous span accross the Severn, the world's first iron bridge, engineered by Abraham Darby and opened on New Year's Day, 1781. 

Take a walk along his five mile stretch of the River Severn Valley, under the famous bridge and along the river through attractive Shropshire woodland and countryside. Try the excellent Coalbrookdale Inn, a traditional pub offering real ales and delicious bar food, situated on the main road accross from the Coalbrookdale iron foundry.
