The Jitties

A ramble through the maze of narrow paths around Broseley Wood. This walk will take you through a delightfully haphazard maze of cottages.

Historic Broseley

A walk around the town of Broseley, taking in some of the town’s rich and varied architecture. See the impressive homes of iron masters as well as the more humble dwellings of their workers. The walk will include some of the statues made from iron salvaged from the decommissioned power station. Designed by Gerry Foxall, these sculptures reflect the rich mining and industrial heritage of Broseley, celebrating the town’s part in the Industrial Revolution.
A 2 mile ramble on pavements, with a few slopes and suitable for push chairs.

Broseley Green Walk

Discover former mining sites reclaimed by nature, now home to woodlands, wild flowers and varied wild life. Follow tracks that once carried coal, ironstone and clay to the bustling brick and tile works of the town, or were transported down the side of the gorge to Coalbrookdale and beyond.
Broseley was famous for its clay pipes and you can visit the pipe museum, preserved exactly as it was left, xx years ago.
Today Broseley is fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful countryside. This green walk is just under 3 miles and takes about 1.5 hours with benches along the way. Two optional extensions are included.
