Ironbridge to Much Wenlock 7.5.2010

Walking this line is only partly possible because Buildwas Junction and the Severn Valley and Much Wenlock lines to the west were obliterated soon after closure, by the building of Ironbridge Power Station. Further damage has been done to the alignment by reconstruction of the A4169 road between Buildwas Bridge and Much Wenlock but it's still possible to walk part of the line from Farley to Much Wenlock. Some stretches nearer to Buildwas Junction may be walkable too, but I haven't had an opportunity to explore yet.
