Getting There

A circular pub walk from the Woodbridge Inn in Coalport, Shropshire. (A longer version of this walk is also available on AllTrails). The Woodbridge Inn is situated on the banks of the River Severn with a raised outside terrace and a sunny garden room both giving great views across the river. The walking route follows an old railway line along the southern banks of the River Severn before crossing into Coalport to join a section of the Silkin Way path for the final stretch. There is an opportunity to visit the Coalport China Museum should you wish. The walking route is relatively flat, with just a couple of short (but fairly steep) slopes. There are no stiles, just a couple of gates and a short flight of steps. The paths are a mixture of tarmac pavements, quiet lanes and a stone/gravel old railway line. The area is surrounded by woodland so leaf drop can make the paths a little muddy in winter but the mud is never deep. Approximate time 1 hour, plus extra time to visit any attractions.

Coalport is located within the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. The walk starts and finishes from the Woodbridge Inn, just off Coalport Road on the southern side of Coalport Bridge. Approximate post code TF8 7JF. The pub has its own large car park, however during peak times this can be very busy, in which case please use the public pay and display car park at the China Museum on Coalport High Street. (From this car park, turn right along the High Street, then cross over Coalport Bridge to reach the pub on the left - about a 10 minute walk).

Tried unsuccessfully to cursor though walk information, to read it but can't. also tried to down load directions, again can't do this, is there a way of doing this, or is the app only intended for mobile phones, if so why not say so.
