Much Wenlock Quick Links
Guided Tour of Much Wenlock Now including Gery Bowden's Garden
The guided tour starts at 10:00am lasting about 1.5 hours and costs £1.00 per person. It takes in the major historic sites of the town, including the Guild Hall and the Museum but not the Priory. By kind permision of Gery Bowden, the tour will now include his garden, the site of the second trench Time Team ever dug! He will be there to point out details, and may also answer questions.
I must know not later than 1st September EXACTLY how many people will be comming on the guided tour (this is so we are aware if anyone is likely to have been held up - then someone will wait behind to meet them and help them to catch up).
Lunch Quick Links
The Olympian Trail, which was only completed earlier this year. This you
would have to follow by yourselves. There is a brochure with a map and an
explanation of each of the sites. The total length of the Olympian Trail
is 2150 metres (approx 1.3 miles).
Lunch Quick Links
Alternatively, for those who prefer to picnic, at one end of the Gaskell Recreation Ground is an area known as Linden Fields, this has seating and conviences (including disabled conveniences), I believe. This area is off Station Road - map
After lunch we will then travel to Ironbridge, or, for those who prefer
non-industrial archaeology, Buildwas Abbey is not far away.

Coffee Note: This will now be at The Swan, The Wharfage, Ironbridge
Finally, those who wish to could meet up in Ironbridge at about 5:30pm coffee and a chat before heading home. This will be at The Swan, The Wharfage, Ironbridge (map). This is a 300 hundred year-old cream building with blue writing on it. During rennovations a malting kiln was found under the floors of one of the rooms, this has now been preserved and is visable through a glass floor. Subject to this room not being used by a function we will be able to see the kiln.
This is a child-friendly establishment, with a small (16 space) car park. Bar snacks, etc will be available.
