A Very Pleasantly placed CL for Ironbridge and Area

The Leopard
The situation is, as stated, excellent for getting to Ironbridge, a place that anyone interested in our Industrial Heritage should visit at least once. Buses stop outside or nearby the entrance.Much Wenlock is only about 3 miles away. Ask the owner for details. If you just need shops then a short walk downhill to Broseley centre will find a Spar and various local shops. There is a Co-Op at the far end of the small town. Access to the site could be awkward if you do not follow the advice given by the owner. The third photo shows a barn and you should enter via the right hand side of it, not the left, as seen from the road. Generally access is fine and the CL is through a metal gate. The pitches consist of 2 on Grass, seen in the first 2 photos, the middle one sits on some hardstanding and the first 2 that you come across are hardstanding. Gaps between the first three are not huge but the 2 grass ones seem better. The metal gate shown in the sixth photo gives you access to dog walking land. Plus you can walk from here to Benthall N.T. property about 1 kilometre away. The site has a 6' hedge to the south and open views to the north and as it sits quite high up is a pleasant one in good weather. The emptying point for both Elsan and Waste Water are down the same grid, accessed by lifting the metal lid (2 long handles provided to help you) next to the bungalow. Water and bins and near the entrance gate and a small information hut is also provided. A couple of picnic tables are also provided. At £14 per night it was an acceptable stop for a few nights.

Lovely weekend

The Leopard
Very peaceful place and friendly owners. Good view across fields, towards Ironbridge, (minus the bridge), and relatively flat for ease of setting up Will defiantly visit again, we were kindly allowed to stay on for the day on Sunday as our pitch was free. Thank you for your hospitality.

This area is a real surprise!

The Leopard
This was perfect for us, just a mile from Ironbridge, where we'd bought a passport to visit the museums. Blists Hill Victorian Village is a must. We also did a couple of walks, one from Ironbridge (6 miles), and a wonderful ten miler from the site, where we had lunch in Much Wenlock. Glad we bought the bikes, because there's an off-road cycling track from Iron Bridge to Bridgnorth - 20 miles in total. A bit rough in places, but wonderful nevertheless. There's three pubs at the Ironbridge end. As for the site, there's a hard standing area, and the rest is grassed, which is regularly cut. The owner's son and daughter were pleasant and helpful. The site is high up with views across to the Ironbridge gorge. It's a ten minute walk into the centre of Brosely where there's a number of small shops, fish & chips, and a lovely coffee shop. We will be returning, as we still need to visit some of the museums...

Lovely friendly site, perfect location

The Leopard
Linda came out to greet us, such a friendly family, extremely helpful. Site was a perfect location for walking into Ironbridge, it was like stepping back in time, museums, independent shops and lovely cafes/tea rooms. The views from the site were amazing, the site being extremely peaceful and a short walk into the local village Broseley, which had a good selection of shops, butchers, supermarkets. We spent a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks at The Leopard, and was very sad to leave.
