BROSELEY is celebrating achieving Walkers Are Welcome accreditation with a weekend of walks through beautiful countryside and fascinating industrial heritage.
We are very pleased to offer these led walks which are all free; we recommend booking as places are limited.
All walks start from the Memorial Gardens in the centre of Broseley. If coming by car, park in either the library or Dark Lane car park which are both free.
Saturday 13th July.
Rediscover the Jitties – starts at 11 am. A 2 mile walk on pavements, through the wonderfully haphazard maze of cottages connected by narrow path called jitties. A walk through some of the most interesting architecture Broseley has to offer!
Honeypot coppice – starts at 11 am. A very varied walk through some beautiful countryside. The walk passes close to the deserted village of Darley and takes the walker past the impressive Willey Estate buildings and historic Willey village. Our longest walk on this weekend at 5.2 miles.
The Mounds – starts at 2 pm. Wooded footpaths taking you past the unique Pennystone Iron mounds of Broseley, a reminder of the industrial heritage of this town.
Patten’s Rock – starts at 2 pm. This walk offers a number of spectacular views across the gorge as well as passing through the beautiful woods of Benthall Edge. The walk starts with glimpses of some of Broseley’s rich architectural heritage and ends over fields with yet more views. This 4 miles walk is a favourite with Broseley residents, it shows what makes walking around Broseley so special.
Sunday 14th July.
