The Green Wood Centre has got together with popular Ironbridge writer and researcher Michael Pooley to produce guides to the woodlands in Ironbridge. Each walk shares an insight into nature conservation within the Gorge together with its geology and history of the Gorge plus, of course, its terrific views.
The new, easy to follow guides offer a step by step narrative to the sights and delights to be found along the way and feature a detailed pictorial map of each route.
