Things to do

Well, where do I start? A very short list for you below.

www.ironbridge.org.uk

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.

Walking Locally

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.

Activities

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.

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.

Things to do

You don’t even have to leave to see what wonderful wildlife we have surrounding us. These sheets are available on request and will be left in the accommodation for children who are staying. There is a magnifying glass and also a bird spotting kit in The Yurt.
