We've been spooked out of our usual haunt, Borwick Hall. This year, we're in Ironbridge for Halloween!
Our venue in Ironbridge is the perfect venue for getting back in to the Halloween spirit. We'll be in a Grade II listed former Literary and Scientific Institute surrounded by industrial archaeology, as well as tea rooms and pubs. It's a venue we love and have used many times, and we're sure you'll love it too!
The area we'll be staying in, Coalbrookdale, had become the foremost industrial area in the world by 1785. It was particularly celebrated for its first iron things: the first iron bridge, the first iron boat, and the first iron rails on top of which they put the first steam locomotive (probably also iron).
The area is great for getting out and about, and for anyone who likes a bit of culture, the area boasts several excellent museums showcasing industrial heritage to explore.
The cost of the hostel includes breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday, and Saturday's evening meal. On Friday evening, we ask everybody to bring enough food for 1-2 people, and we'll have ourselves a traditional OutdoorLads buffet. For more info, see 'food and drink' below.
Halloween 2022 might not technically be a BIG event, but as you've waited so long we think you deserve some of the luxuries of a BIG Event. Danny and Andy will bring the pop-up bar, and DJ Dan will bring his disco balls! Fancy dress is optional, but we know our members love the chance to get dressed up for Halloween! No specific theme this year, just Halloween, however you wish to interpret it!
Watch this space for events taking place over the weekend. There are so many walking and cycling options in this area, so expect to be spoilt for choice!
- There is limited (if any) phone reception in Coalbrookdale.
