Medium Walks

Fish House Wood

This walk takes you on some of the lesser known paths around Broseley, past the ruins of Red Church and returns through the beautiful Fish House Wood. This is a deciduous wood with a stream named ‘Birch Batch’ running through the middle, so it can be muddy in places.
2.5 miles mostly on footpaths, with some paved road including the Ironbridge Road which must be crossed twice. Not suitable for push chairs.

Dingles and Valleys

One of the favourite walks of Broseley residents! Corbett’s Dingle is a very atmospheric gorge, with weathered sandstone creating beautiful surroundings. The walk continues towards Jackfield, past many industrial places of interest including Jackfield Tile museum, St Mary’s Church and the site of Salthouses village that was destroyed in the 1952 landslip. The walk returns through the lovely Monewood Valley and the Haycop Nature Reserve.
3.5 miles mostly on footpaths and short stretches of road, including crossing the Ironbridge road. Expect mud after rain, some uneven ground, ups and downs and not suitable for push chairs.
Toilets half way at Maw’s Craft Centre.

Patten’s Rock

Another favourite walk of Broseley residents takes you through the beautiful woodland of Benthall Edge to the top of Patten’s Rock quarry where there is a fantastic view point looking towards Ironbridge.  Continuing through the woods of the Edge there are more spectacular views across the gorge before returning past the impressive National Trust property of Benthall Hall. This is a very special walk, packed with a variety of countryside, industrial heritage and views; highly recommended if you want to see what makes Broseley so special.
4 miles on footpaths and short stretches of road; steps, slopes and some rough ground. Muddy after rain and not suitable for push chairs.
