There is no river access in Ironbridge by the paid Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH). All the river front land is private with no permission to access the river without paying. Jackfield just above the rapids is the only place to exit or launch on the Severn.

Where do people get on then? Unless things have changed in the last month, everyone
usually gets on from the Mill car park, and drop down the bank. Many people use it every week.
Why do you say there is no access there?

Rae1, do you know how long this access point has been used in this way? If it's been used for 20 years without objection, it may be a public right of way, and need to be be registered as such.
