According to latest research walking a mile a day cuts cancer risk by a staggering 40%.

Why not spend only 15 minutes a day and come for a walk in the stunning landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge. If you want to get some fresh air, see amazing views, get fit or stay fit then much of the land in the Gorge managed by SGCT is on steep slopes but well served by steps, with boardwalks and tracks on the flatter tops of the valleys. Try our new path up Loamhole Dingle from the Upper Furnace Pool at the bottom of Darby Road in Coalbrookdale and you should see birds like Dipper and Wagtail as you follow the stream up to the Ropewalk wildflower meadow then back on a 1 hour walk.
