IRONBRIDGE WALKING GROUP
Ironbridge Walking Group are a group of local volunteers, keen to promote walking and the beautiful area in which we live. Every year we organise the Ironbridge Gorge Walking Festival – a 9-day long celebration of walking that includes more than 50 free guided walks for all abilities this is usually held in May. This year we return with a pop-up highlights festival of 36 walks from the 4th to 12th of September with the addition of 9 walks from the 16th – 24th September as part of the World Heritage Festival. Our programme aims to offer something for everyone, from long challenge walks, with the opportunity to receive a 100, 50 or 25 mile medal, to short information walks, showcasing the rich history or flora and fauna of the area and everything in between. We try to illustrate all the fabulous things the area has to offer, from local projects to heritage properties, coracles to artists. And there’s always time (and plenty of choice) for refreshments!
For walks from the 4th to the 12th September please go to our website www.ironbridgewalking.co.uk

Walks are open to everyone and free of charge. Suitable clothing and footwear for the weather conditions should be worn/carried. For all walks, walking boots/shoes are essential. Please bring food and drink for the walk. Some routes will have the opportunity to stop/purchase refreshments but this cannot be guaranteed. Walks will commence at the given time but durations are only approximate. Walkers are walking at their own risk.
We all need to take extra steps to stay safe. Please follow all safety advice given by the walk leader, including the latest guidelines on physical distancing.
