Ironbridge Gorge Walking Festival

The team behind the hugely popular annual Ironbridge Gorge Walking Festival have launched their long-walks programme for the 2019 festival. The event, running from 4 - 12 May, is offering more than 50 FREE walks over nine days, making it probably the biggest in the West Midlands and one of the best in the country. The festival offers a number of ‘themed’ walks ranging from two to 21 miles covering a whole host of topics from the wonderful landscape and geology of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site to the wildlife that inhabits The Gorge’s ancient woodlands. The walks are graded in terms of suitability for walks for everyone through to walks for experienced countryside walkers.   Long Walks Programme The festival is offering a number of long walks for 2019 with five walks of more than 20 miles and six walks of more than 15 miles.   The long walks include The Wrekin and a Rifle Range, taking on some of the less well-known paths on this famous hill, and The Gorge by Rail, a linear walk starting and ending at a railway station and passing through the World Heritage Site. These routes are aimed at more experienced walkers with the aim of providing a challenging but enjoyable day out. They range in length from 12 to 21 miles and mainly involve walking away from roads; some include steep ascents. Walkers will also need to carry enough food and water for the whole day.  There is also an opportunity to complete the 50 or 100-mile challenge in the nine days by completing the series of daily long walks. Some of these comprise two walks of approximately six miles each, with a break to allow time for lunch in Ironbridge. The full Walking Festival programme, which will include shorter walks for families, themed wildlife walks, wellness walks and walks to music, will be published later in the year and a leaflet available early 2019. All walks are free; however, pre-booking is essential as numbers are limited to a maximum of 20 people. Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome on some walks, but please check before booking. To reserve a place or request a copy of the programme contact the Ironbridge Visitor Information Centre by email at tic@ironbridge.org.uk or call 01952 433 424.  For more details about the walks visit www.ironbridgewalking.co.uk or email info@ironbridgewalking.co.uk.

Thanks for a lovely stay here, albiet only for a 2 days. A most generous and welcoming experience. We appreciated the hamper very much. We will probably appear here again as we have never really experienced and explored Shropshire. We will also be recommending it to our friends.

Gwen and Mike (Morris Dancers)

We have really enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. Jane and Rob were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. The riding was varied,sometimes challenging but always scenic! Kitty thought she had died and gone to heaven when we turned her out.

Ian and Lana (plus Kitten the horse)

After riding for nearly 3 hours, Upper Heath Farm is a beautiful place to stay, stunning views and a tranquil setting, a lovely cottage with everything we could wish for, plus plenty of grazing and rest before heading off again!

The Parry family plus 4 horses

Specifically Recommend: If you are taking horses it’s perfect, if you are after a very tasteful country stay in a cottage from Country Living magazine then you will not be disappointed.

We've really enjoyed our first stay in Shropshire. We enjoyed visiting Stokesay Castle, walking on the Long Mynd and exploring Nordy Bank ( the local hill fort ). The cottage has been lovely- quiet, comfortable and relaxing.

Pete and Sue Churton

Will not be disappointed, straight out of Country Living magazine” We took our two horses with us for this mini break with the dream of off-road riding and beautiful countryside, and we were not disappointed. The stables were fantastic, mega deep bedding, also on rubber, automatic waterers, and big, airy, stone stables with the most lush grass paddock for 24-7 use. The cottage was just as impressive, beautiful, superbly clean, quality finishing, luxury carpets, towels and bed linen, with lots of personal appropriate touches. It was so enjoyable to go to a place with such class in an area untouched by time. Looking forward to a return trip..

Local Gems: Pub was good fun, great community. The rides were fab, the hacking was so quiet, even on the roads we only met three cars all day. The cottages and buildings in the area were outstandingly beautiful and so interesting to ride or walk around. Sarah F from Shepshed, Leicestershire - 21st June 2014 "We enjoyed living this 'rural idyll' in this delightful cottage.A memorable Boxing Day treat-many thanks for everything!"

The Bailey Family

Lovely welcome, very friendly, comfortable cottage. We were lucky with the weather and did some nice walks from the house (fort is worth a visit) and in Church Stretton area. OS maps are very handy - thanks!
