Things to do
Well, where do I start? A very short list for you below.
The Ironbridge Gorge, the heart of the industrial revolution, home to the famous Ironbridge and a quietly proud UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Ironbridge Gorge Museums are enough for all of the family to enjoy over a few days and each one steeped in history.
Below is a link to walking trail leaflets from Severn Gorge Countryside Trust. Blists Hill to Ironbridge Trail can be done from the door of The Barn at Lees Farm.
I can highly recommend this for a day out if you SUP and have your own board. This guided river tour is great for teaching you to be safe and learn some good skills for River Supping.
EV Charging locations TF7
Trains can be caught to Telford or Shifnal. Both approximately 10 minutes from The Barn at Lees Farm. Link to Trainline below. There is a cycle path directly from Telford that passes within 100m of the driveway. The link to The Silkin Way is below also.
The Arriva Bus 4 travels to Madeley from Telford Central Station.
Places to Visit
Madhouse Farm Paca Picnics and walks
These come highly recommended, we had such a fantastic time as an extended family of all ages.
National Trust – Nearby
Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Shrewsbury on the River Severn. The best fun, or the most relaxed way to see the Severn. I can highly recommend.
State of the art climbing wall in Shrewsbury.
Geocaching in The Ironbridge Gorge is on another level. I have had guests promise to return as there were too many for one weekend. We even have one at The Barn at Lees Farm, will you be able to find.
Apley is a great farm shop with Paint a Pot, Donkey Rides, Petting Farm, Play Barn and lots of seasonal activities.
