Great Ironbridge Coracle Drift

18th September 2021 10:00 am 5:00 pm

A fundraising event for the Ironbridge Coracle Trust. We are aiming to get as many experienced coraclers as possible to paddle the 7+ miles from Cressage to Ironbridge along the beautiful River Severn and raise money through sponsorship to support the work of the Ironbridge Coracle Trust. The mass ‘Coracle Drift’ will form part of the World Heritage Ironbridge Festival and we want to make a spectacular sight as we come into Ironbridge.

Don’t be fooled by the name though! This tough paddle will take approximately 4 hours. The route will take us via the fascinating meanders and loops of the River Severn, near Leighton, under the iconic Iron Bridge itself  before  we get out opposite the newly restored Old Coracle Shed at  Ironbridge Canoe Hire.  We will finish here with a celebratory B-B-Q.   Seven miles in a coracle will test the padding on your bottom!  Are you up for it?
