Welcome to our website!

We hope to inspire you to walk the Gorge-ous!

Our main event is our nine day annual Walking Festival which traditionally starts on the first Saturday of the May Day Bank Holiday but we do offer other events throughout the year so do keep an eye here for the latest information.

With September approaching we are once again offering walks that support The Shropshire Way Festival, and the Festival of Imagination  -   plus a new challenge!!

September 2022

We have nine walks this year, ranging from 4.5 to 20 miles. Five of these include the sections of The Shropshire Way that run through Ironbridge as part of The Shropshire Way Festival.

As usual, all our walks are free and those who complete 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!

For walk details, booking information etc please visit Our Walks page.

In addition, 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. Don’t worry if you can’t commit to the whole challenge- these walks are open to all - we’d like to welcome everyone to walking in the gorge!
