ActivitiesThe most notable local attraction is the eponymous Ironbridge, around 4 miles from the farm, though nearer 2 miles if you ask Derek for directions along the farm footpaths. This vast cast-iron construction has been wowing visitors since 1779. Visit the Museum of the Gorge (01952 433424) for an insight into this iconic region. Plan your visit for September to get involved in the free Ironbridge World Heritage Festival. The area boasts several stately homes and historical buildings including Attingham Park (01743 708123), Buildwas Abbey (0870 333 1181) and Sunnycroft (01952 242884). Charming county town Shrewsbury is also just 10 minutes away while foodie mecca Ludlow is also just down the road.
Food & DrinkThe Kynnersley Arms (01952 510233) in Leighton serves up a decent rage of beers and reasonably-priced pub grub. The nearby Huntsman of Little Wenlock (01952 503300) is just 20 minutes walk away. It boasts an ever-changing selection of local ales, while the restaurant does a mean Sunday roast with the finest locally-sourced meat. For guyrope gourmands, the Ludlow Food Festival takes place every September and features over 160 producers and Michelin chefs.
