It’s a rocky-sided gorge, taking a stream which is rarely more than a trickle down to the Severn at Coalport. Provided the mud is tolerable, it’s a very pleasant and quiet way. At its foot, we meet the old railway track, which we’ll follow as far as the end of the rough lane which will take us back up to the barley fields and home. On the lowest part, just beyond the old railway, heavy rain has exposed the red sandstone – we’ve reached rock bottom!
