I used this route for Swansea Ramblers weekend away in Ironbridge in October 2019. The directions are good and it is full of useful information. Although we started our walk on the route rather than at the beginning I was still able to follow it by cutting and pasting the text into a word document. There are some places where it needs updating: under Point 5 'Opposite the school turn right up Belmont Road. 30m up on the left is the birthplace of Billy Wright of Wolverhampton Wanderers (K)'. Billy Wright's birthplace is on the right NOT the left; it would helpful if the optional extension described under Point 8 was shown on the map; and under point 11 'Go past St Mary the Virgin church (AM) and at the end of the road go left down a muddy woodland path to the riverbank.' The path is now has a hard surface with a slope and steps.
