|The Woodbridge Inn and Coalport|
|Author: Pub Walker, Published: 17 Oct 2013||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 2 mile circular pub walk from the Woodbridge Inn in Coalport, Shropshire. (A 5 mile version of this walk, The Woodbridge Inn and Ironbridge, is also available on iFootpath). The Woodbridge Inn is situated on the banks of the River Severn with a raised outside terrace and a sunny garden room both giving great views across the river. The walking route follows an old railway line along the southern banks of the River Severn before crossing into Coalport to join a section of the Silkin Way path for the final stretch. There is an opportunity to visit the Coalport China Museum should you wish. |
The walking route is relatively flat, with just a couple of short (but fairly steep) slopes. There are no stiles, just a couple of gates and a short flight of steps. The paths are a mixture of tarmac pavements, quiet lanes and a stone/gravel old railway line. The area is surrounded by woodland so leaf drop can make the paths a little muddy in winter but the mud is never deep. Approximate time 1 hour, plus extra time to visit any attractions.
Coalport is located within the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. The walk starts and finishes from the Woodbridge Inn, just off Coalport Road on the southern side of Coalport Bridge. Approximate post code TF8 7JF. The pub has its own large car park, however during peak times this can be very busy, in which case please use the public pay and display car park at the China Museum on Coalport High Street. (From this car park, turn right along the High Street, then cross over Coalport Bridge to reach the pub on the left – about a 10 minute walk).
|Start to Jackfield Memorial Bridge|
Start point: 52.6149 lat, -2.4417 long
Leave the pub car park via the vehicle entrance and cross over the road with care to join the footpath opposite, the Severn Valley Way signed to Ironbridge. On the right you’ll also see a waymarker in the shape of a Saxon Warrior which marks this as part of the Mercian Way, a 230 mile long cycle path which runs from Salisbury to Chester. This path is so-named as it passes through what was once the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia. Pass through the kissing gate (or cross the horse hurdles) to join this wide surfaced track.
|Jackfield Memorial Bridge to End|
Start point: 52.6195 lat, -2.4541 long
For this shorter version of the walk, cross Jackfield Memorial Bridge passing over the River Severn, to reach the far side in Coalport.

My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
