Walks & Trails

Ironbridge Gorge Walking Festival team return again this year, including walks that support The Shropshire Way Festival, which coincides with the Festival of Imagination  –   and a new challenge!!

To commemorate this Platinum Jubilee year, we’re offering a 70km challenge over 4 walks on 2 consecutive weekends finishing on the final day of The Festival of Imagination. 70 km is approximately 44 miles, so each walk will be roughly 11 miles and visit different parts of The Gorge.

As usual, all our walks are free and completers of the challenge will receive a medal and certificate to celebrate their achievement.

Do come and join us – it would be great to catch up with old friends and lovely to make some new ones!
