World War Walk – this Saturday!!

This saturday (22nd June) I will be leading a 4 mile walk from Coalbrookdale to the Coalport and Jackfield memorial bridge that will coincide with the museum’s 1940s event Blitz Hill. The walk will take us on a jounrey through the events and sites of both the first and second world wars in the Ironbridge Gorge including sites such as munition factories, the Wing Shop, the Ironbridge war memorial and the defensive features in both Jackfield and Coalport that were put in place to defend against any possible Nazi invasion. The walk will start at 10am, meeting outside of the Museum at Coalbrookdale, and will finish on the memorial bridge at about 1pm (I hope). Places are limited so if you want to come along please contact me in order to book your place.
