Local walks in the area
Granville Country Park is adjacent to the club’s land. It is one of the largest and most wildlife diverse of these places, much valued by local people for its recreational opportunities. The spirit of renewal is tangible here. Nature has reclaimed it after centuries of industrial activity, which finally ceased when Granville, the last deep mine in the county, closed down.
Relics of former industrial activity, including furnaces and an old winding house, are now surrounded by woodland full of birds, while pit mounds of waste have been transformed into flower-rich grassland and heath.
The Wrekin is less than 10 miles from the club. A spectacular walk to the top of the Wrekin, the “little mountain” in Shropshire with the most diverse geology found on Earth.
The Sabbath or Workmen’s Walks were mainly used on Sundays, a day of rest, for the workers to enjoy the views overlooking industrial Coalbrookdale and the panoramic views of the iconic Ironbridge Gorge.
